Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)

We have specialist teaching and support teams to work with young people and adults with a wide range of learning difficulties and disabilities. Our facilities are adapted to provide access to everyone.

Learning Support

For students on mainstream courses, our Learning Support Team helps over 1,000 people each year achieve success.

The Aurora Centre

The Aurora Centre is our non-residential, specialist centre for 16-24 year olds with autistic spectrum disorder and complex needs.

Foundation Learning/SEND

This programme offers individually tailored learning for 16-24 year olds with particular needs in a supportive environment.

Financial support

Depending on your circumstances, you could get Government grants or other financial support. For example the Disabled Students’ Allowance if you’re on a university-level course. Find out what’s available on our Financial Support page, or ask the Learner Support Team.
