Non-medical helpers can include specialist one-to-one study skills tutors, specialist mentors, assistive technology trainers and BSL sign language interpreters. Although there is a cost, Disabled Students Allowance can pay for non-medical helpers. And we can give you a hand completing your application.
The Library has a range of services to help disabled students study. You can find out more here.

A wide range of support and adjustments can be put in place if you have a hearing impairment. In addition, we have hearing loops in many of our lecture theatres and service areas, and a deaf alerter system, in case of emergencies.
If you're a blue badge holder, you can apply for a free-of-charge X permit to park on campus.
If you're not a blue badge holder, you can apply for an AX permit if you need to be able to park on campus because of your disability. A registration fee will apply.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more and apply for a permit here.
If you have assistance to support your independent living at home, or think you may need this type of support when you move to university contact your local authority's Social Services well in advance of starting your course. You should inform Social Services that you have an offer to study at the University of Hull and that you require a social care assessment.
Remember that you'll need to transfer any health services that you currently use. Get in touch with them so that they can help arrange to transfer this support to a service provider in Hull.
Moving to University can sometimes be daunting and may affect epileptic students, particularly during more stressful periods.
We have the Epilepsy Friendly mark, which recognises Universities who are doing more and provide better support to epileptic students.
If you need help with your epilepsy, get in touch and we'll do all we can to help.
