Starting at university can be a very daunting experience for most students - more so if you have a disability and need specific support, advice or individual guidance.

It's also an exciting time to further develop your skills and knowledge in your chosen area, a great way to meet new people and learn new life experiences.

There is lots of support available to help students achieve their full potential whilst at university and to access their course.

York has two universities (the University of York and York St John University - ou can find out more information how each university can support their students who have disabilities or additional needs on University of York and York St John University websites.) and two colleges (Askham Bryan College and York College) which offer a wide range of HE courses, both academic and work-based (e.g. Foundation Degrees).

It is important to consider that some degree courses ask for particular A Levels or other qualifications. Teachers and advisers at schools will be able to advise which subjects may be useful and relevant when picking options for higher education. Additionally, information about the entry requirements for each course is available through University and College prospectuses and websites.
