Disability Services at UOW provides reasonable adjustment advice and support for current and prospective students with a disability or health condition. Their aim is to ensure that students with a disability realise their full academic potential despite their disability. Students who have a disability should register with Disability Services as soon as possible in order to receive additional support and advice. More information including registration is on the Disability Services website. The Student Support Adviser (SSA) is able to act as a link between the student, Disability Services and relevant academic staff to ensure the student is supported through their study. Students must register with Disability Services first.
