Diversity and inclusiveness is at the heart of our culture.
We are able to make reasonable adjustments within our application process to ensure that you have the best chance of success. We understand that there’s not a “one size fits all” approach to adjustments so our team will work with you individually to understand more about your requirements.
The team will usually ask for supporting documentation to help manage your adjustments. If you have already been formally diagnosed as having specific learning difficulties, you will be asked to provide a copy of your Educational Psychologist or Specialist Teacher Assessor's assessment report. If you need special arrangements to be made because of a disability other than dyslexia or dyspraxia, the team will talk to you about what we may need.
We understand that it can be difficult to talk about a disability, however it may be beneficial for you to be open about your disability so that we can support you through the process and ensure you have the right level of adjustments. Any conversations we have with you regarding disability and adjustments will be treated confidentially.
Common requests that can be accommodated are:
- Additional time - this can be provided for online testing, written assessments and increased preparation time for exercises at our assessment day.
- Hard copy - we can arrange for hard copies of materials for assessments, or for materials to be adapted (e.g. increased font size)
