Who can get disability support

A wealth of support for study-related needs is readily available for all students, such as support with assignments from a tutor and accessible module materials. There is also additional support based on your disability or condition.

If you're an apprentice, contact disability-apprenticeships@open.ac.uk to learn what support is available for you.

You're entitled to support and adjustments to teaching, assessments and study materials and activities if you have:

  • a physical or sensory disability
  • an ongoing health condition
  • an ongoing mental health difficulty
  • a specific learning difficulty such as dyslexia
  • an autistic spectrum condition
  • a speech or language difficulty.

You'll need to provide supporting evidence of your disability to access our additional specialist services. These services include:

  • non-medical help support
  • support for services at residential schools
  • specialist alternative formats of module materials
  • equipment loans
  • alternative exam arrangements

If you're still unsure whether you'd be entitled to support, contact the Disability Support Team.
