A physical disability is the long-term loss or impairment of part of your body’s physical function. It can involve difficulties with mobility, manual dexterity, muscle control, speech, fits and seizures or chronic tiredness. A physical disability may be genetic or come about through illness or injury. A physical disability may be obvious, such as loss of a limb, or less obvious, for example, epilepsy.

Support at University

All students accessing the Wellbeing Service at the University of Lincoln are assigned a specialised Advisor who will be a point of contact throughout their time at University. We can create Learning Support Plans, which provide academic support, as well as recommending particular accommodation (providing it is relevant to the needs of the student) and helping to apply for Disabled Students Allowance. Support can only be put in place when a student provides relevant medical evidence. If you have any questions, please contact us.
