Disability Advisers meet disabled applicants and students in confidential, one-to-one appointments. They are each linked to central services and faculties for whom they are the main contact for advice and training. Disability Advisers also participate in projects with colleagues within the university to support the advancement of inclusion at King’s.
Assistant Disability Advisers do not provide appointments, but they assist the advisers by answering phone calls and emails. The Assistant Disability Advisers run regular drop-in sessions and can follow up on queries about topics such as Disabled Students' Allowance (DSA), assistive technology, exam provisions and accommodation. They are also the first point of contact for prospective students seeking information visits.
Important to know: During this period, Disability Support are supporting students remotely, and all appointments will be held on Microsoft Teams or by phone. For more detail about changes to the service please take a look at our article Accessing Student Support and Wellbeing remotely.
