Disability support

Study Support Service

We offer information, advice and specialist support to students with disabilities, including mental health difficulties, ongoing medical conditions and specific learning difficulties, such as dyslexia.

Some of the things we can help with include exam or timetabling adjustments, access to facilities, and specialist study skills support.

If you've told us about a disability on your university application form, we'll get in touch to discuss the support we can offer you.

We also hold drop-in sessions for current students, where you can discuss anything with us in confidence:

  • Cambridge, 12-1pm weekdays (room HEL341)
  • Chelmsford, 12-1pm weekdays (2nd floor, Tindal)
  • Peterborough, 12-1pm Wednesdays and Fridays (room GUI107b).

Alternatively, you can email us on disability@anglia.ac.uk.
