Disability Advisory Service (DAS) Welcome Event

The Disability Advisory Service (DAS) is holding a Welcome Event for Disabled Students on Friday 7 September 2018.  The day is an informal opportunity for students who have disclosed a disability to find out about the support and services available at the University. You will also have an opportunity to ask questions about disability-related study support arrangements. It is important to ensure these are organised in advance of the start of term where possible, to enable you to focus on studies and get the most from your time once you’re here.

Very useful!  I was really worried about whether there would be support available and about whether the people offering support would be approachable.  I found all of the speakers friendly and welcoming and all questions I had were answered.

At the event you will hear about:

  • The Disability Advisory Service
  • Managing transitions and student life at Oxford
  • Support and systems in Oxford Colleges, Departments, Libraries, and the Careers Service
  • Support for study, including exam access arrangements and the Disabled Students’ Allowance

There will also be an opportunity to hear from and talk to current students who can tell you more about studying at Oxford with a disability.

…it was comforting to learn just how extensive the support network at Oxford is.  In particular it was good to hear about the large numbers of students at Oxford, with all ranges of disabilities, to know that attending Oxford with a disability is not just possible but is relatively common

Places are limited on a first-come, first-served basis.  Book a place through the Eventbrite page or contact the Disability Advisory Service by email [email protected], or call +44(0)1865 280459 to reserve your place before Friday 24 August 2018.
