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 hear about the support and services available at the University. We hope this will be helpful as you approach the start your new course and will provide an opportunity for you to ask any questions you might have about your disability-related study support arrangements at Oxford. It is important to ensure these are organised in advance of the start of term where possible, to enable you to focus on your studies and get the most from your time once you are here.
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.
Quotes from last year:
“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.”
“…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”
