Clearing advice for students with disabilities

Applying to Swansea University

If you have a disability, medical condition, mental health difficulty or any other specific need, there is no reason why your university experience should be any different from anyone else’s.  We welcome your application to study at Swansea University.

Receiving an offer through Clearing or Adjustment

After an offer has been made, you will be asked to complete one of the Inclusive Student Support Services' Clearing questionnaires as detailed below:

If you have disclosed a disability with a UCAS code of

C, -Blind/Visual impairment

D,  Deaf/Hearing impairment

E, Long standing illness or health condition

G, Specific Learning Condition such as dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Irlens, and AD(H)D

 H, Physical or mobility disability

I Disability, impairment or medical condition not covered by other categories

 J. Multiple disabilities or medical conditions.

Please complete the following questionnaire online as soon as possible.

Information regarding the Disability Office privacy statement can also be found on the questionnaire page, should you require further information on this and how we share information.

The Disability Office will also require supporting evidence of your disability or medical condition and further information can be found in the following document and in our short video below:

Supporting Documentary Evidence

The questionnaire will ask information about the nature of your disability or medical condition, and any support requirements you have. This is to ensure that the University is able to put into place any additional support, and make any reasonable adjustments, which may be required, in time for the start of your course. 

If you have disclosed a disability with a UCAS code of:

  • F - You have a mental health condition, such as depression, schizophrenia or anxiety disorder
  • B - You have a social/communication impairment such as Asperger's syndrome/other autistic spectrum disorder

Please complete the following questionnaire and return it immediately with supporting evidence of your disability or medical condition to wellbeing@swansea.ac.uk

Submitting your questionnaire

Your questionnaire will be considered by our Disability Office/Wellbeing Service as soon as it arrives, and they will contact you as soon as possible to discuss your support needs.

In a small number of cases it may not be possible to make the necessary arrangements in time for the start of the course, and the Disability Office/Wellbeing Service may recommend that your place is deferred until next year.
