‘Student Assistants’ are employed by the Disability Team and they provide one-to-one assistance to disabled students with specified tasks, such as:

  • taking notes in class on behalf of D/deaf or hard of hearing students, or students who have a physical impairment making note taking difficult
  • on-campus mobility and other physical tasks
  • assisting in the production of accessible format materials

When a student requires the support of a Student Assistant, the Disability Adviser will create a written agreement which details the nature of the support to be provided, and which both the student accessing the support, and the Student Assistant, will be asked to adhere to.
