Assessment Centre

Informal Screening

We give preliminary screening assessments to students who are wondering if their difficulties are associated with a learning difference such as dyslexia / dyspraxia etc.

A screening assessment is very informal; it is free of charge to Bangor University students and usually lasts about an hour and a half; we talk to you about your early background and your experiences of learning in the past and present. There are also a few short tests.

To arrange an appointment, come in or phone 01248 383030 or email

Bangor University Staff are also able to book these through Miles Dyslexia Unit on 01248 382203 or email

Full assessment / Assessment Fee

If you have previous had additional exam arrangements due to Dyslexia / Dyspraxia etc. and you would like a full assessment.  The Assessment Centre is able to offer students a diagnostic service to determine if you have a Specific Learning Difficulty such as Dyslexia or Dyspraxia. The university pays part of the fee, however a student contribution of £100 is also required.

We carry out assessments for students at Bangor University only. For information on services for external students please see:

Our qualified assessors meet the government guidelines for assessing in Higher Education.

  • All our assessors are registered with their respective professional bodies
  • All our assessors are qualified to identify Specific Learning Difficulties (SpLD)
  • All our assessors are qualified to recommend, if appropriate, whether a student should be eligible to apply for the Disabled Student Allowance (DSA)

The full assessment can take around 3-4 hours.

Applying for DSA

We support any Bangor University student with their application for DSA. This includes support with completing the application form, liaising with Student Records and being able to answer most questions you may have with regards to the DSA process.

We will also save a copy of the form in case it gets lost in the post.
