How Inclusive Education support works

In order for us to deliver support, various people who work for the University will need to know. However, you can be sure that only those who need to know will be told, and they will respect your privacy.

There will be nothing on your academic record or on your qualification to show that you have had support.

Inclusive Education complies with the Health Information Privacy Code (1994).
