Manchester Metropolitan University is committed to providing equal opportunities in education for all students.
The advisers within the Learner Development Service act as a contact within the University for current and prospective disabled students. The role of the Learning Development Adviser is to provide information, advice and support to students about the resources which are available to them, both within the University and from other external agencies.
The Learning Development Advisers will work with students to help steer them through any necessary screenings or assessments, which will identify their individual needs. They also assist them with any applications for the Disabled Students’ Allowances (DSAs), liaising with relevant funding bodies as appropriate.Advisers also have links with academic colleagues, and other central services such as the libraries, to raise awareness of disability issues and to ensure that appropriate support is available.
