If you are under 25 and have an Education and Health Care Plan (EHCP) in place, you or your Local Authority should have informed the University of this before the point of application. This will have allowed us to assess your needs promptly, and make a formal decision as to whether we can support your studies with us.
If you have an EHCP, which was not made available to us at the point of application, either by your Local Authority or by yourself directly, then we suggest that you do so at the earliest possible opportunity.
If you have an EHCP, but you don’t know if we have received it or not, then please get in touch with the Admissions team and we will be able to check for you. If we haven’t received it, we will then be able to begin the consultation process to make sure that we’re able to review your case and assess whether we are able to meet your needs.
If we only receive your EHCP after you have either been made an offer of a place on a course, accepted an offer of a place on a course, or after you have enrolled on a course, then we will make all reasonable endeavours to assess your EHCP and secure the special educational provisions required as per your specific needs. In some limited circumstances, for example where it would be unsuitable for your age or level, or where we have assessed that we will not be able to efficiently assign the resources that you require, the University may not be able to support your needs or specific requirements. If we have not been given prior consultation or advance notice of your EHCP, then this may have consequences on your application, offer or enrolment status.
