Learning and disability support

BU is committed to helping students with an additional learning requirement.

If you need any kind of assistance, please make an appointment with the Additional Learning Support Service.

They are there to support whatever you require and can make the necessary arrangements for you.

If the circumstances require special examination arrangements (e.g. scribe or extra time in examinations) an application should be made on the appropriate form. The case must be properly documented by medical or other evidence and must be submitted to the Additional Learning Support Advisor as early as possible in the academic year.

Exam support

Your application for support must be received by the ALS team by Friday 24 November 2017 for the January exams and Friday 30 March 2018 for the summer exams.

Please be aware that it may take up to nine weeks to get the necessary evidence for exam support, so allow plenty of time when applying.
