Disability and Access

The University of Buckingham values each student as a unique individual and is keen to improve accessibility for disabled students.

If you have a disability, mental health condition or Specific Learning Difficulty (e.g. dyslexia), the University will make all Reasonable Adjustments in order to accommodate your needs.

What is an unfair barrier?

An unfair barrier could be:


For example, signage, furniture, lighting, and access to buildings.


For example, stereotyping, discrimination and prejudice.


For example, teaching practices, course materials, timescales and assessment methods.

Reasonable Adjustments

We consider each student’s needs on a case-by-case basis to ensure that their disability is properly understood and that Reasonable Adjustments are as effective as possible.

Wherever reasonable, we will accommodate your disability-related needs at the point of service delivery. Therefore, you’re welcome to ask any of our staff for disability-related adjustments at any time before or during your studies.
