The Department of Electronic Engineering, like all other departments, falls under the University's Equal Opportunities Policy. The University has an explicit policy accommodating students with disabilities. It believes that those with disabilities should have the full range of academic, cultural and social activities it can offer. To that end, the University will undertake all reasonable steps to meet both the general need for access as well as the specific needs of individuals. The University does request that you notify it as soon as possible of any special needs and this is therefore normally indicated on the UCAS application. Information regarding disabilities has no bearing whatsoever on academic assessment of your application.
The Electronics / Physics Building is equipped with a lift as are most of the University buildings. The Department has a positive attitude to accommodating all suitably qualified candidates. We have a departmental Equal Opportunities Officer, who is on hand for students when they start their course and beyond to help with any issues.
The University also has a dedicated Disability Services office who can help and advise you before and after you start your course. There is a wealth of information available on their web pages including details on study support, applying for Disabled Students Allowance, specific impairments and Dyslexia support.
