Disclosure and documents

It's your decision whether or not to declare your disability or condition but we would urge you to do so.

It's your decision as to whether or not to declare your disability or condition, but we would urge you to contact the Disability and Wellbeing Service as early as possible, so that we can offer you advice and information in a confidential discussion.

We will ask you to complete and sign a disclosure form when you contact us. You may revise the disclosure form at any point during your studies.


Your right to confidentiality is respected and information regarding your disability or condition will only be given out with your permission and on a "need to know" basis.  

Confidentiality is required under the Data Protection Act 1998 which categorises such information as "sensitive". For more information read our confidentiality policy.

Admissions decisions are based solely on the information presented on the application form, and you will not be treated differently if you have a disability, medical condition, dyslexia or neurodiverse condition or other specific need.  LSE aims to create an environment which enables all students to participate fully in university life.

If you're applying for graduate study you should make sure that you complete the section Disability, Specific Needs or Medical Condition codes in the Monitoring Form at the end of the LSE application form in order to notify the Disability and Wellbeing Service of your application

This disclosure is NOT passed to the academic selector.
