Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND)

Teesside University is committed to promoting equality and diversity and supports those with disabilities or special education needs before and during study with us.

If you have a young person with a specific support need and would like to find out more about the support we could provide, the resources available and how you access our service, please contact us. Similarly, should you have a young person who may require assistance to take part in any of our pre-entry activities, please let us know when you book, so we can discuss your requirements.

We provide support to students who are:

  • visually impaired
  • hearing impaired
  • wheelchair users or people with mobility difficulties
  • medical conditions
  • autistic spectrum disorders
  • mental health services users and people with specific learning difficulties (for example, dyslexia).

This list is not exhaustive.

Funding and support

The fees, funding and support available at university is sometimes a perceived barrier for young people from widening participation backgrounds. We have a dedicated team of student advisors who are able to provide one-to-one information and advice relating to fees and financial support.
