Students with disabilities

The University's Disability Advisory Service provides information and advice on the way in which a particular disability may impact on your experience at Oxford, and can assist you with organising disability-related study support.

University support

The University of Oxford supports over 1,300 students who have declared a disability, including specific learning difficulties (such as dyslexia and dyspraxia), long-term health conditions, mental health difficulties, mobility difficulties, sensory impairments and autism spectrum disorders.

We strongly encourage you to let the Disability Advisory Service (DAS) know if you have (or think you might have) a disability as early as possible so that they can advise on the range of study support that is available and can make any support arrangements that may be required.

You can download a guide to accessing disability support from the DAS website.

Alternatively, please contact the team to speak to a Disability Advisor who will be happy to answer any questions you might have:
