Building an inclusive environment

We want to build an inclusive environment that is welcoming and supportive, by removing barriers and encouraging full participation in all that Surrey has to offer. We are committed to ensuring that support and adjustments are available for all those with a disability as defined by The Equality Act (2010). This includes:  

  • Autistic spectrum conditions 
  • Long-term medical conditions 
  • Mental health conditions 
  • Physical disabilities (see our access guides
  • Sensory impairments 
  • Specific learning differences (e.g. dyslexia, dyspraxia).

We encourage you to disclose any disability or medical condition at any time of your contact with the University of Surrey:

  • When you apply for a job here
  • When you start work here
  • At any other time while employed here
