Students with disabilities

The University of St Andrews is committed to helping people realise their academic potential, and this commitment extends to students with disabilities, long term medical conditions or learning difficulties.

If you have a disability, it will not stand in the way of your being offered a chance to study here in St Andrews. It is our policy to assess applications from all students on strictly academic grounds.

The University has students with a wide range of disabilities and learning difficulties. We welcome the opportunity to work with these students to meet their individual requirements.

Within the University's Student Services team, there are two disability advisers and a specific learning difficulties coordinator. They can be contacted at any stage of the application process for information, advice or support by emailing disability@st-andrews.ac.uk. Applicants are encouraged to make their needs known on their application form and at interview, so that the University can best respond in terms of appropriate support and advice.

A visit to the University is strongly recommended. Personal visits and telephone inquiries are welcomed.
