Support service

We offer a confidential support service for students with varying needs.

What our students say

I first contacted Surrey’s Disability and Neurodiversity service prior to my admission. The support they put in place for me included having quiet accommodation in a preferred hall of residence, weekly mentoring sessions, the opportunity to go to an isolated room to study in the library, organising for me to take my dyslexia and dyspraxia assessments, and much more.

When I left college I had learning difficulties but did not want to admit it. University is a big step up from college work... as soon as I went to the team, my marks improved and I gained confidence. Reg Sookee, BA (Hons) Media Studies
