What are reasonable adjustments and what should I consider?

Under the Equality Act (2010) all education providers are required to ensure that disabled people's access requirements are met and colleges and higher education institutions are required to provide publicity and all other materials in a range of accessible formats (large print, Braille, etc). These institutions have an 'anticipatory' duty under the legislation and they should be able to provide materials in an appropriate format without difficulty.

You may wish to consider the following when contacting your University:

  • Arrangements for accessing your course
  • Arrangements for exams and assessments
  • Accommodation arrangements
  • Arranging Mobility Training 
  • Guide Dogs on campus 

Further information can be found on RNIB's reasonable adjustments and Disabled Student Allowances (DSAs). web pages.
