Students with long-term medical conditions

Advice and support is available to students with long-term medical conditions. A long-term condition is one that has lasted (or is very likely to last) more than one year. Examples include: diabetes, epilepsy, cystic fibrosis, cancer, HIV, chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS/ ME), irritable bowel syndrome, arthritis or osteoporosis. If you have a long-term medical condition, even one not listed here, this may be considered a disability under the Equality Act 2010 and you may be entitled to support or adjustments.

You may still be considered for support or adjustments even if your condition isn’t affecting your life much at the moment – but is likely to do so in the future. An example of this would be if you had recently been diagnosed with a degenerative condition, such as multiple sclerosis.

We encourage you to contact one of our Disability Advisers, who can help identify services appropriate to your individual needs.
