    Exam Access Arrangements

    Exam Access Arrangements are granted by the Examining/Awarding Body (not the College) on the basis of a learning difficulty and/or disability or medical condition and after careful consideration and assessment. Sufficient time must be given to collect the evidence for submission to the Examining/Awarding Body and for them to inform the College of their decision to allow an arrangement.

              The College welcomes learners with disabilities including those with mental health difficulties and aims to provide the appropriate support, resources, facilities, and services to enable all students to be successful in their chosen programme of study. We recognise that everyone is unique and we will work with learners to identify any barriers that exist and what can be done to overcome them. In this section you'll find links to resources selected for you by our Specialist Support Lecturer, Kevin Lynch, who advises on support for mental health issues.
