Welcome to the Access & Disability Office
Access/Disability Support Service is dedicated to providing a professional and supportive service for students in a welcoming environment.
We are committed to widening participation and achieving equity of access to higher education for students from under-represented groups in third level, including socio-economically disadvantaged students, students with a disability, students from minority backgrounds and mature students.
Overview of the Access & Disability Service:
- Pre-Entry: Advice and Information for prospective students on Access issues.
- Daily Drop in support: Personal support for students facilitated by an open door policy. Information, advice and advocacy assistance provided where appropriate. Provision of college related practical supports such as an Access Book Library Scheme.
- Financial assistance: Information on the ESF Student Assistance Fund and other sources of financial assistance available to eligible students to help with costs of attending college.
- Needs Assessments for Students with Disabilities: To determine the supports that need to be put in place to allow you fully participate in your academic programme and reach your academic potential, it is recommended that Students with Disabilities register with the Access Services. In order to register, students are required to complete a Registration form and provide evidence of their disability from the appropriate consultant.
