SEND

For students with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities, thinking about progressing into Higher Education can require some additional consideration to ensure the course and institution is a great fit for you and can provide any support you might need.

On this page you’ll find links to useful resources and video recordings of webinars focused on the needs of SEND students, but if you can’t find what you’re looking for, or you’d like more information, please contact us!

UCAS

UCAS has specific resources for students with additional needs, on all stages of the Higher Education preparation and application process.

Disabled Students Allowance

DSA can be a real lifeline for students with additional needs when studying, providing specialist equipment, non-medical helpers (e.g. BSL interpreter) or travel costs. The Government website provides an overview, but you can hear more about the DSA process in our webinars lower down this page.

Supporting Inclusive Transitions Webinar

In December 2020, Shaping Futures, along with four of our university partners hosted Supporting Inclusive Transitions, a virtual CPD event for teachers and other practitioners working to support students with additional needs. The webinar featured talks on Mental Health and Resilience, Assistive Technology, Student Support at University and Disabled Students Allowance, as well a Student Panel. Although this event was initially aimed at teachers, the information it contains will be useful for students, parents and carers too!

Speak to Shannen & Tony

We know it can be really useful to speak to someone who’s already been in your position, and we have both staff and current undergraduates available on our live chat who accessed disability support services while at university. They’re happy to help, and share their experiences to help you.
