Benefits of disclosure
If you have a disability, specific learning difficulty or a health condition then we recommend that you disclose this to the College. Disclosing a disability to the College means that reasonable adjustments can be put in place to help reduce any barriers to study for students with additional support needs. It will also ensure that your specific individual needs are being met.
You may not feel that your disability will impact upon your studies at all and therefore do not wish to disclose. If this changes at any point during your course, then you may disclose at any point during your time at Imperial College.
Disclosing a disability will not mean you are treated unfavourably. Some people have concerns about discrimination, or being rejected by people with preconceived notions about disability, or may feel that they are uncomfortable discussing their disability with people who may not fully understand. The Disability Advisory Service can discuss these concerns with you.
