Students with disabilities may apply for adjustments to be made to their transfer and confirmation assessments and final viva arrangements using the GSO.19 form. Form GSO.19c gives information on the application process for students and staff. All of the adjustments outlined below may be approved by the DGS, except where it is indicated that the approval of the Proctors is required.
This guidance is given in three parts:
- general adjustments that will remove barriers for all disabled candidates: it is recommended that over time departments seek to embed these arrangements routinely as inclusive practice that will eliminate the need for special requests
- individual adjustments appropriate to all disabled candidates
- additional individual adjustments appropriate for particular disabilities
While these adjustments will address the needs of most disabled candidates, please note that they are not exhaustive and it might be that different adjustments are necessary.
