What is classed as a disability and do I have to tell LJMU about my disability?
Do I have to tell the University about my Disability?
No it is your right to decide. However LJMU positively encourages students/applicants to disclose any disability or health condition which may affect them on their course. By disclosing a disability, it will ensure that the appropriate support or ‘reasonable adjustments’ are put in to place to try to reduce any barriers an individual may face due to their disability, health or mental health condition or specific learning difficulty.
The University positively welcomes disclosure from students at any point during their time with LJMU and hopefully students will feel confident in disclosing details to staff throughout the University. For full information on the LJMU disclosure policy please see: http://www.ljmu.ac.uk/MKG_Global_Docs/Disability_Policy.docx

I have a disability but do not require support, what do I need to do?
We would still recommend that you come along and speak to a member of the Disability Advice Team to ensure you are aware of the range of support available to you. If after this meeting you still do not want to access support then we will document this on your record. If at a future date you would like to discuss any potential support requirements, you should contact the Disability Advice Team as soon as possible and we will be happy to discuss your needs.
