Ways of disclosing
- Disclosing as part of your UCAS application to Imperial College London
- Disclosing to the Disability Advisory Service
- Disclosing to your department
- Disclosing by amending your student record
If you declared a disability on your UCAS form, or other application to Imperial College, then this information will be entered onto your Registry student record. This information is confidential personal information and is covered by the Data Protection Act. You should not rely on this disclosure to alert your department to any additional support requirements or needs that you might have.
Disclosing to the Disability Advisory Service
You can disclose your disability to the Disability Advisory Service by emailing us, by meeting with an Advisor, or by sending us a copy of your evidence. When you meet with a Disability Advisor, you will be asked to sign a disclosure form and offered the opportunity to sign a non-disclosure form if you would prefer. Our Advisors will be able to answer any questions you have about who may have access to your information and answer any worries or concerns you might have. Even if you have declared as part of your UCAS application, we strongly recommend registering with the Disability Advisory Service.
Disclosing to your department
You can disclose your disability by informing someone in your department, for example, the Departmental Disability Officer. This information is not automatically passed to the Disability Advisory Service, so if you would like us to know, please either a) contact us directly, or b) ask your Departmental Disability Officer to let us know.
Disclosing by updating your student record
If you are unsure how to update or amend your student record, you can find a downloadable guide at the updating your student record page.
Support will not be put in place automatically; if you disclose using this method and wish support to be implemented, you will also need to make an appointment with the Disability Advisory Service.
