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

It is 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: University of York and York St John University. There is support available for students wishing to further their education and attend university. You 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.
