Autism spectrum conditions

Our advisors will work with you to develop a support package that addresses the particular challenges you may encounter during your studies. 

These may include:

  • social communication and interaction with other students and staff
  • knowing what is expected of you by your course and the university
  • managing the change to university life and adjusting to new routines
  • organisation, orientation and academic skills
  • motivation for things which don't seem relevant or of interest
  • sensitivity to environmental factors like light, noise, smell, taste and temperature

It is important to let your advisor know if you have any further diagnoses so that they can discuss additional support with you.
