This policy sets out how we can support you with regards to your studies if a mental, emotional or physical disability affects the way you interact with the Open University community.
We are committed to helping you achieve your study goals. We recognise that studying can support positive mental wellbeing in many cases. This policy covers circumstances where despite extensive support from us, you display unacceptable behaviour, caused by a mental, emotional or physical disability (declared or otherwise) that is impacting on your ability to study, on other’s ability to study or on the teaching and administrative processes of The OU. It sets out how we can support you to continue your studies, to take a break or to stop studying completely in such circumstances, in a supportive way rather than with recourse to disciplinary procedures.
