This Dyslexia Awareness Week, we are holding one-off sessions for students who think they may have a learning difference or difficulty.

These same-day appointments are only bookable on the day of the event. You can book through askUCL or by calling 0207 679 0100 from 9am on Thursday 7 October. Make sure you ask for Tim. Appointments are limited and often booked up quickly.
