Students with disabilities
Both the Senior Tutor/Director of Course Operations, Andreas Kogelbauer, and Student Wellbeing Adviser, Eghosa Atti, are involved in provisions for students with learning and/or physical disabilities.
The Teaching Support Officer liaises with the College Disability Advisory Service in advance of examinations to make sure that the most appropriate arrangements are in place. You should contact them to discuss your specific situation.
The College Disability Advisory Service also provides confidential advice and support for all disabled students, and can assist students in the following ways:
- signposting additional support within the College
- accessing funding for disability-related support
- facilitating support to ensure that disabled students can access all aspects of their course
- providing advice, support and guidance for all disabled students within the College.
Outside the department you can contact:
- Imperial College Union academic representatives who are elected each year from amongst the student body and are responsible for collecting feedback about all aspects of your academic experience, which is then fed back to staff.
- A range of support services available to students; see the Student Support Zone for detailed information on these.
