Support with day-to-day living
UCL does not provide support for tasks necessary for daily living. This means you will need to think carefully about any non-academic, disability-related support requirements you may have, e.g., assistance with shopping, cooking, cleaning, laundry or personal care.
The University may be able to provide information about agencies that can provide care assistants, but you need to be aware that you will most likely have to meet the costs of this type of support yourself, as this is non-academic support and government welfare benefits are not available to international students. Support with day-to-day living can be very expensive, so this is an extra cost for which you must budget.
You are advised to discuss this in depth with your sponsors and with Student Disability Services prior to your application, as this type of support needs to be planned and resourced well in advance.
