At BPP we understand that you may require guidance, assistance and support with your studies. The Learning Support team provides support to assist you with a wide range of learning difficulties and disabilities: Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Dyscalculia, ADHD, Autism Spectrum, low vision or blind, deaf or hearing loss, wellbeing and mental health issues, health conditions and much more.
The Learning Support Office work with all teams at BPP to provide support and guidance for you to enable access and participation in learning and all our services. As a student with a learning difficulty and/or disability you are covered by the Equality Act 2010.
We encourage you to tell us about your learning difficulty, disability or health condition when making your application to ensure that we can plan support in advance. Please contact the Learning Support team directly on the details at the bottom of this page, or alternatively contact your local Learning Support Representative. Our services are available to all students at any stage of their journey at BPP.
How to Access Your Support
There are five steps to Learning Support:
- Contact the Learning Support Team
- Complete a Disclosure Form
- Discuss your support and send us a Dr's Note or Educational Psychologist's Report*
- We produce a Learning Support Agreement - outlining your support
- We arrange for your support - on course and for exams
Screening for Dyslexia
Free screening is available to investigate if you think you have Dyslexia. Please contact the team for details.
Educational Psychologists Reports
We have a network of Educational Psychologists who can provide a formal diagnosis for Dyslexia and other Specific Learning Difficulties if you think you may be Dyslexic or you have an existing report which is out of date. Please contact the team for details. There is a £75 student contribution towards this.
Doctor’s and Other Medical Notes
Doctor’s notes and medical letters from consultants can be provided as evidence for a wide range of health and medical conditions. These should be recent, dated and clearly outline the condition and its affects. We would need to see the original document in the English language and ensure that it is on headed paper from a registered medical practitioner or consultant. We advise students from outside the UK to have evidence translated into English and bring their evidence with them.
Please contact the service to arrange a site visit and to discuss your arrangements and support.
Disclosure and Confidentiality
All information disclosed to BPP University or discussed with a member of the Learning Support team will be dealt with in the strictest confidence. It will only be shared with staff at BPP University and, when specialist support staff are provided, with our specialist support staff at Barry Bennett Ltd on a "need to know" basis. You will be invited to complete a Disclosure Form so you can restrict who the information is shared with.
We will not share your information with your employers. We can offer information and advice about how to disclose a disability or learning difficulty or health issue when making applications for employment.
