A Learning Support Plan is specific to the University of Lincoln and can be created for any student who has medical evidence of a diagnosed disability. It is a document that is sent to yourself and your school, and details specific areas of academic support including examination requirements.

The medical evidence must clearly detail your diagnosis, with information on how this affects your ability to carry out day-to-day activities, with emphasis on how it impacts your ability to fully engage with your academic studies.

We can create a Learning Support Plan with you if you have suitable evidence for a disability, mental health condition, impairment or specific learning difference (such as dyslexia or dyspraxia). We cannot create a Learning Support Plan with you for any short-term injury or illness i.e. something you will recover from such as a broken bone.

To create a Learning Support Plan, you will need to bring your medical evidence to the Student Wellbeing Centre, and have a chat with one of the advisors in a drop-in sessions.

Student Wellbeing Drop-in Times:

  • Thursday evenings (during term-time only) between 5-7pm
