Get in touch

Applicant days and interviews

If you have any specific requirements for an upcoming applicant day or an interview, please get in touch at least 10 working days beforehand if you need a British Sign Language (BSL) interpreter, or other assistance or equipment. If your applicant day or interview is to be held remotely and you have concerns about accessing it, please do contact us.

For some people it is useful to have an appointment with a Disability Adviser and admissions tutor at the same time, for example to discuss support in labs, or arrangements for assistance dogs. Please let our team know if you would like to meet a Disability Adviser.

Auditions and entrance examinations

If you have a disability or specific learning disability (SpLD), be sure to respond to the attendance letter you will receive from the Admissions team, which asks for your medical letter or SpLD evidence for adjustments at least 10 working days prior to assessment.

The evidence must comply with the University's validation criteria. Medical letters must be a signed and dated by a relevant GP or consultant. SpLD assessments must have been completed by a registered Chartered or Practitioner Psychologist or Specialist Teacher holding a current Assessment Practising Certificate. The report should meet the criteria of the Higher Education SpLD Guidelines.


We assure you that any information you give to us is treated in confidence. In order to meet our responsibilities under the Equality Act, we may have to share information to ensure reasonable adjustments are implemented. If you do not wish Disability and Neurodiversity to share this information, please let us know. However, this will limit the range of support we are able to offer.
