It is strongly recommended that all students with a disability register with the Disability Support Team as soon as possible so that your reasonable adjustments and support needs can be identified.

Who is covered by the term “Disability”

Goldsmiths seeks to make reasonable adjustments in line with the Equality Act 2010, to ensure disabled students can participate equally in all aspects of college life.

By the term ‘disabled students’ we mean people with physical and sensory impairments, mental health needs, people with long-term health conditions and also those with specific learning difficulties (e.g. dyslexia, dyspraxia, ADD etc).

The following are recognised as disabilities;

-          Specific Learning Difficulties (e.g. dyslexia, dyspraxia ADD)

-          Visual Impairment

-          Deaf / Hard of Hearing

-          Mobility Difficulties (e.g. Back Condition, Wheelchair User)

-          Health Conditions (e.g. Cancer, ME, Arthritis, Epilepsy)

-          Mental Health Needs (e.g. Depression, Anxiety, Bi-Polar Disorder)

-          Autistic Spectrum Disorders (e.g. Aspergers Syndrome)

This is by no means is an exhaustive list. The Disability Team is there to support and advise you if you are facing (or potentially facing) disabling barriers so if you have an impairment or condition not listed here, please do get in touch.
