Support for prospective students


We recognise that choosing to go to University will involve significant life changes, and for some students extra consideration and preparation is needed. Of course, we also recognise that going to University is a great opportunity. Loughborough University is committed to ensuring that disabled students (including student with specific learning differences such as dyslexia, dyspraxia and dyscalculia) receive the support they need to succeed.

To start this process, we would encourage prospective students to disclose their disability during the application process. Loughborough University will not discriminate against you on the grounds that you have a disability. If you tell us about your difficulties we will discuss with you whether there are any adjustments or support which might need to be put in place. 

You may like to take a look at the following video clips regarding the experience of students who declared a disability prior to enrolling.

The Disability Office provides a range of support for students depending on your specifically assessed needs.
