Learning & Disability Support Service
Our aim at NCI is to promote equality of access for learners with disabilities, specific learning difficulties, mental Health conditions and on-going medical conditions
We coordinate a wide range of supports for students who are registered with the service to ensure they have equity of access to their studies including Learning Support, Assistive Technology, Library Supports and Exam Supports.
The most important first step is to make sure that you can access these supports in an open, relaxed, friendly and confidential way. To do this you must register with the service where your needs will be considered and the relevant supports can be put in place for you.
NCI encourages students to be open about their disability and to discuss their individual needs with the Disability Officer as early in the academic year as possible to ensure that necessary supports are provided.
Students should be aware that to receive exam supports they must have registered with the Learning & Disability Support Service by Reading Week of each semester.
There is a dedicated Learning Support Tutor for students registered with the service who can provide one to one support on a variety of topics including goal setting, motivation, academic writing and referencing, assignment structure, time management and exam strategies. A proof reading service can also be provided.
