Support for Students with Disabilities
NCIUL welcomes students with disabilities, from physical to mental disabilities, long term medical conditions, as well as specific learning disabilities. In order to offer the best support during your learning experience at NCIUL , we suggest you disclose and register your disability with the Student Office. Your personal situation will be treated with fairness, equality and respect, and you will be supported in your every need. Please refer to the ‘Disability Strategy’ of the Institution for more information.
Students with special needs
NCIUL are committed to providing equality of opportunity through the best possible level of support to students with disabilities.
Disability here is used to cover a broad range of physical and sensory impairments, medical conditions, specific learning difficulties and mental health needs. The definition of disability found in legislation says that a disability is any condition which has a significant, adverse and long-term effect on the person’s ability to carry out normal day-to-day activities.
Therefore, ‘disability’ can mean:
- a sensory (visual/hearing) impairment
- a mental health difficulty
- a mobility impairment
- a dexterity impairment
- Asperger’s syndrome or other autism spectrum disorders
- chronic medical conditions (eg diabetes, epilepsy, asthma)
- chronic pain/chronic fatigue
- specific learning difficulties (eg dyslexia, dyspraxia)
- any other condition which has a long-term and adverse effect on study
