12 Students with specific access requirements
The University has an Inclusive Practice policy for International Programmes Students with specific access requirements.
Specific access requirements include students with a disability or learning difficulty, students who are currently in prison, and students who have legally imposed travel restrictions. For a full definition, see the Inclusive Practice Policy, www.londoninternational.ac.uk
As part of its policy for students with specific access requirements, the University will make every reasonable effort to accommodate the requirements of a student with a disability and/or special needs by, wherever possible, providing any study materials in a different format (e.g. large print) or another medium, and/or by making special examination arrangements. If the University is unable to provide the study materials in the format that has been requested, the University will endeavour to make an alternative suggestion.
Special examination arrangements
The University has a panel which considers special examination arrangements for students with a disability and/or special needs. The aim of the panel is to make sure that a student who has special examination requirements is neither disadvantaged nor advantaged when compared to other students. The University cannot guarantee that special examination arrangements will be possible in every case.
Students requiring special examination arrangements are strongly advised to apply for such arrangements well in advance of the examination entry deadline. To apply for special examination arrangements, contact email@example.com
Applications for the use of special aids or for extra time in written paper examinations from students with a disability and/or special needs may be considered.
Special arrangements for written paper examinations at an ad hoc examination centre may be made in very exceptional circumstances and then only in the United Kingdom. Arrangements cannot be made for oral or practical examinations to be held at an ad hoc centre, although (in exceptional cases) it may be possible to permit the use of special aids. Arrangements for written paper examinations to take place in a student's home cannot be made. Additional fees may be payable for arrangements at an ad hoc examination centre.
An ad hoc examination centre is an examination centre which is not listed as a formally approved centre. An ad hoc examination centre can be arranged in certain circumstances, subject to the University's approval of a student's request.
