Accessibility information for Exeter applicants

Accessibility information (Exeter) - Information for disabled applicants 

The Accessibility Service is based within Student Services in Tremough Annexe. We contact all potential students who have declared a disability or special need, so that we can explore any learning support needs that you might have when you start your course.  

What you should do next 

Please email   

If you have diagnostic evidence of your disability, medical condition or learning difference, please attach a copy.  We recommend that you encrypt any evidence you send to us via email using your date of birth (DDMMYY). 

An Accessibility Adviser will then ask you to complete a questionnaire to allow them to identify any reasonable adjustments you may need. This information will be used to create an Individual Learning Plan (ILP) which will be sent to your course team. Any information you provide to the Accessibility Service will only be shared with people who need to know in order to put support in place for you.  You can contact an Accessibility Advisor at the email above or phone (01326) 370460.

Why inform us of your needs? 

Sometimes we will have to make arrangements for your support before you arrive. For example, if you need specific support and equipment to be in place when you start, or if you need adjustments to your accommodation. Any support you have previously received at school or college will not automatically be transferred to university. 

You are welcome to visit the campus at any time to discuss your particular needs with an Accessibility Adviser. 


If you need accommodation adaptions, you will need to give details in the Accessibility Questionnaire. We will then send a copy of the questionnaire to the Accommodation team.  

Please note, you will need to complete the separate Accommodation Application process to apply for University managed accommodation. Further information can be found on the Accommodation website.
