It is the responsibility of students with disabilities or dyslexia to discuss this with Tutors early in the course so that where applicable, special provision can be considered. UCL policy is spelt out in the manual "Information for Students with Disabilities" which is available from the UCL Disability Coordinator who can be also be contacted for advice.
Education and Information Support Division run a course on English and Academic Literacy. This course addresses difficulties students may have at surface (grammar, syntax, vocabulary etc) or depth (writing task typology, purpose, value). Enquiries or registration for places should be addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org .
Some career advice can be offered to students in individual discussion with the Course Organiser and Course Tutors, who may be able to arrange for the student to have further discussion with colleagues, or to obtain fuller information about options (e.g. professional training or study for a PhD) from relevant sources. Students should also be aware of the careers advice available through UCL Careers Office.B. In New Haven
