By law, LSE is required to ensure that students who have a specific learning difficulty such as dyslexia or dyspraxia; a disability; a mental health condition or a long term medical condition are not disadvantaged.
Reasonable adjustments are put in place to help you.
Reasonable adjustments will vary substantially but examples include:
From your department
- Ensuring that lecture notes and slides are provided in advance
From the Disability and Wellbeing Service
- One to one study support with specialist tutors
- Access to designated study rooms and computer rooms (subject to availability)
- Specialist furniture and equipment
From the library
Many Inclusion Plans make reference to the provision of assistive technology.
The Disability and Wellbeing Service work closely with colleagues in the Data and Technology Services, who can provide specialist support and a range of assistive technology for disabled students
For information about assistive technology at LSE visit IT Accessibility.
There are hearing loops installed in all teaching rooms. Headsets and neck loops can be collected from the Disability and Wellbeing Service or the the IT Audio Visual team.
