Non-Medical Helpers (NMH) for disabled students
Information about the assistance we provide for students with disabilities to help them with specific tasks during their studies.
Non-Medical Helpers (NMH)
We provide disabled students with assistants to help them with their studies. Support can range from specialist mentoring, 1-1 study tuition or BSL interpretation. Most support can take place online but it may also be possible to arrange in-person support if required.
Disability Access Plans (DAPs) set out what kind of support a student receives. The Disability Service arranges DAPs.
