The Disability Service is part of Student and Academic Services. They provide information, advice and guidance whether you are an applicant, current or international disabled student.
Disability can mean different things to different people. By the term ‘disabled students’ we mean any student with:
- specific learning difficulties such as dyslexia, dyspraxia and dyscalculia
- a long term health condition
- a physical or sensory impairment
The Disability Service's contact details are:
I got diagnosed with Graves Disease this year. It's related to all sorts of things with all sorts of symptoms, as soon as I got that, I talked to my personal tutor and he referred me to Disability Services. They put it through so that I can have extra time in exams and extra time for doing coursework. Tayah Livesey, MChem (Medicinal Chemistry)
Tolerance and respect for religions and beliefs are important at the University of Bradford. The city has places of worship for most faiths and religions and many of these are close to our campus.
The Interfaith Chaplaincy team represent various faith groups and provide spiritual support and pastoral care for staff and students of all faiths and none.
You can contact us via email before, during or after your time at the University.
