We want to make sure that everyone, regardless of disability or differences, has what they need to reach their full potential at Christ Church.

To help you succeed, our specialist Student Disability team can support and advise you if you’re facing (or potentially facing) disabling barriers to studying independently at university.

These include:

  • autism spectrum disorders or Asperger syndrome
  • dyslexia, dyspraxia and other specific learning difficulties
  • mobility impairments
  • sensory impairments
  • unseen disabilities such as epilepsy, HIV, AIDS and chronic fatigue
  • long-term health conditions.
