We need to know about your disability, including mental health to enable us to arrange reasonable adjustments in relation to your studies.  

Around 15% of the population have a disability, whether you can see it or not. The University offers a dedicated, confidential Advisory service to help students to access the reasonable adjustments they are entitled to, based on their condition or impairment and their programme of study.  

Help and support is available. The process is evidence-based, and you will need to register with the Disability or Mental Health Service.  

You work in partnership with your Advisor to agree what is reasonable and proportionate considerate of your condition or impairment, to develop a Learner Support Profile (LSP). Only once you have approved the content, will be it accessible to staff who teach on your course If you decline to disclose your disability, specific, individualised reasonable adjustments cannot be implemented.  

Please select ‘Two or more impairments and/or disabling medical conditions’.  

If you have indicated you have more than one disability you will be asked a follow up question to gather further data in order to ensure the University is able to support you fully during your studies.

Protected Characteristics 

On this page we ask you if you have ever been in care, are currently estranged from your parents, if you provide care to others or have parental or guardian responsibilties.

A care leaver is any adult who spent time in care as a child (i.e. under the age of 18). Such care could be in foster care, residential care (mainly children's homes), or other arrangements outside the immediate or extended family. 

UCAS defines an estranged student as someone who no longer has the support of their family due to a breakdown in their relationship which has led to ceased contact. This might mean their biological, step or adoptive parents, or wider family members who have been responsible for supporting them in the past. More details can be found on the UCAS and Student Loans Company websites. 

UCAS defines a student with caring responsibility as someone who is responsible for providing unpaid care to someone who has, for example: a long-term illness; a disability; a mental health condition; an addiction; temporary care needs following, for example, an accident or operation.  

The caring responsibilities question does not include childcare unless your child has additional disability, health or support needs. Childcare is covered in the following question.

After completing online enrolment

The University of Bradford has an award winning process linked to the diagnosis of dyslexia and other Specific Learning Differences (SpLDs).  This is a fully funded, four stage process starting with the Screening Questionnaire. A highly confidential, automated process uses the responses you give to recommend the next step in the process.  

Each academic year around 250 students are diagnosed or report indicators of conditions that benefit from educational support.  

Students with an SpLD are as likely as their peers to gain a ‘good degree’ at the University of Bradford. 

All students who enrol with the University are invited to complete the initial screening questionnaire. Although it is optional, we do encourage all students to complete the process. Once you have completed the initial questionnaire, the recommendation might be no further action, or where appropriate you will be invited to progress to the QuickScan initial assessment tool, an internationally renowned on-line assessment for SpLD. The outcome of the QuickScan determines if you are referred on for a full assessment with a specialist, qualified assessor. 

We do encourage new entrants to complete the initial screening questionnaire on or before starting their studies. Dyslexia and other Specific Learning Differences are often referred to as ‘hidden’. This is because you will have developed strategies that ‘disguise’ it. Research has determined that students may benefit from support to develop new strategies as they progress through higher levels of learning. Students can take screening questionnaire multiple times, but can only take the QuickScan assessment once.   

Please contact the welcome helpline on 01274 236161 or email welcome@bradford.ac.uk

If you are studying on campus you will be asked to attend a session so we can check your ID and you can collect your student card. Details will be communicated via email.  

If you are not studying on campus or are doing a professional development course your ID will be checked remotely and your student card will be posted to you. 

Please allow a week from the receipt of your completion email and two weeks if you are based overseas. If you have not received one after this time, please contact the welcome helpline on 01274 236161 or email welcome@bradford.ac.uk.
