Who we are

The Disability and Dyslexia team is a small and diverse team of advisors who are passionate about enabling students to overcome barriers to their learning. We understand no two individuals are the same and incorporate this into the way we support our students by providing individual solutions and impartial advice. We support students throughout their journey at UEL and will remain a point of contact for the duration of your course.
