When you meet with an adviser they will talk you through the various ways in which the School can provide support and adjustments to your studies, such as:
We can create an Inclusion Plan (IP) to ensure that staff are aware of your circumstances and can make adjustments as needed. For example by providing teaching materials in formats which are accessible to you, reserving appropriate seating in lectures, or facilitating one-to-one support at the LSE Library.
IPs are created in collaboration with you, and will be discussed in detail with your adviser at your first appointment.
Human Support and Assistive Technology
Where appropriate, we can arrange for additional human support to help with your studies, such as a note-taker for lectures, or a support worker to help you get around campus.
We also have specialist IT rooms on campus with access to screen-reading, magnification, and OCR software.
Individual Exam Adjustments
We can recommend Individual Exam Adjustments (IEAs) to ensure you are able to take your exams with reasonable adjustments in place. For example by providing large print exam papers, extra time, or access to screen-reading software.
Appropriate IEAs can be discussed with your adviser, and are dependent on your individual circumstances and the medical evidence you provide.
