Universities provide support services to students with disability including chronic medical conditions. This may include planning for assessment adjustments, exam provisions, equipment and assistive technology provision, liaison, advice and advocacy, among other services.
Disability staff are available to meet with prospective students with disabilities and ongoing medical conditions to help plan their university studies. Call or email well in advance of when you would like to see someone. For example, if you would like to meet on your term break, ring to make the appointment at least two weeks before. If you live far away, or can't make it in, ask for a phone appointment.
