Disability: The Common Framework

All parts of the University have agreed to work within a common framework to promote a consistent approach to providing support for students with disabilities. The framework aims to improve the sharing of information, the clarity of the roles and responsibilities of everybody involved and the consistency of provision.

The framework has two key elements: the Statement, which provides an overview of the guiding principles underpinning our goals; and this web-based Handbook about supporting students with disabilities for all members of the collegiate University.
