Reasonable Adjustments

The Reasonable Adjustments regulations define how UCL supports students with a disability or long-term medical or mental health condition throughout their learning, teaching and assessment experience. They cover students at all levels of study, including taught and research students.

Under the Equality Act 2010, UCL is required to make Reasonable Adjustments to learning, teaching and assessment to ensure that disabled students are not put at a substantial disadvantage. UCL can also provide Reasonable Adjustments for students who might not consider themselves to have a 'disability' but who nevertheless would benefit from additional support with their studies due to an ongoing medical or mental health condition.

For more information about Reasonable Adjustments, please visit the relevant section of the Academic Manual here.

Personal Emergency and Evacuation Plan (PEEP)

In order to ensure your safety at UCL your department and if applicable, UCL Accommodation, must know about your needs to ensure you are able to safely evacuate in case of an emergency from your learning space or accommodation.  In some cases a PEEP may be required for a temporary injury or illness.  The PEEP will be written with you to ensure it is specific to your needs and will be reviewed during your time with UCL to ensure it remains accurate and appropriate.

Full details on the PEEP process can be found here - https://www.ucl.ac.uk/estates/safety-ucl/fire-safety/accessible-fire-safety
