Negotiating Adjustments

A student, whose disability, mental health or medical condition impacts on their learning, will probably want to ensure that their Course Coordinators are aware of their learning issues. To support negotiation of reasonable adjustments, students should provide a copy of their Access Plan to their Course Coordinator. 

Before negotiating adjustments, students should read through their Course Information Booklet (CIB) and make themselves aware of how the course will be run and what is expected of them. This will enable students to be able to plan what kind of adjustments they might need.  Students will then need to arrange a suitable time to discuss these adjustments with their Course Coordinator. It is important to do this at the beginning of the course. Disability Advisers are able to support students in this negotiation.
