Disability and mental health support for international students

Kingston University provides disability and mental health support to help our students to get the most out of their time here.

Our specialist support is aimed at students with disabilities – including students with long-term health conditions, mental health conditions, physical or sensory impairments and specific learning differences, such as dyslexia.

Support services include:

  • advice and guidance on support available;
  • adapted accommodation for disabled students;
  • disabled-parking permits;
  • extended library services;
  • advice on being assessed for specific learning differences (like dyslexia);
  • extra study skills support and teaching and learning adjustments;
  • equipment loans;
  • access to our adapted computers, which are reserved for students with disabilities;
  • Inspiration (mind-mapping software), Claro Read and TextHelp Read & Write are available on all student-use computers across the University;
  • information on support workers, non-subject specific tutoring or mentoring; and
  • adjustments to examinations and assessments.

Please note: international students are not eligible for funding for Disabled Students' Allowance (DSA), however alternative help can be provided from the disability and mental health advisers.

For more information, or to arrange to meet a disability and mental health adviser, please contact us:

Students can also join the Accessibility Network for a student-based community within the University.
