Applicants with Disabilities or Specific Learning Difficulties

Norwich welcomes applications from all groups in the community including those with disabilities or specific learning difficulties. The University encourages applicants to disclose information about a disability as early and as fully as possible as this allows us to put appropriate support in place. Failure to disclose a disability, or to give full information, may lead to a delay in the provision of that support.

Norwich University of the Arts is housed in a range of buildings that date from the medieval period onwards. While students with a variety of disabilities and specific learning difficulties have successfully studied at the University, the inaccessibility of some of our buildings may cause difficulties for wheelchair users, or those with mobility difficulties.

Wherever possible, we’ll arrange for you to visit the University to assess the learning environment first-hand. The University is fully committed to continuing its policy of improving and extending access where practicable and to increasing awareness of the requirements of people with disabilities and special needs.
