Students with PLSPs
General and new disability-related enquiry
Students should email the relevant Adviser should they meet with disability-related concerns impacting upon their studies:
If unsure which Advisory team to contact, email email@example.com
If you feel you may have a Specific Learning Difference (SpLD) such as dyslexia, dyspraxia, ADD, etc. we can help you to obtain evidence for this in the form of remote assessment. Although this is not a formal diagnosis, we can provide evidence to enable you to access the same types of support whilst studying at Bangor University and enable you to apply for the Disabled Students’ Allowances (if applicable).
For more information, please visit the Assessment Centre or contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
We are now offering students appointments for Study Needs Assessments for Disabled Students Allowances via Teams, Skype, or Zoom.
SpLD Team Specialist Study Skills and Strategy Support
You can find information on the SpLD Team here.
Students should email their mentor as per usual, or if they have any general queries, email: email@example.com

Mental Health Drop in Sessions are online
Wednesday afternoon between 2pm and 3.30pm
In view of the current situation Cheryl, Fiona and Sioned are taking our regular weekly drop in session online. We will have to work it a little differently so that we can manage and respond fairly to students who need to speak with us.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org, stating the outline of your situation and preferred method of communication (Microsoft Teams video / audio call, telephone call or e-mail). A Mental Health Adviser will then get back to you.
you could join us at our group discussion, held via Microsoft Teams beforehand, 1pm - 1:30pm, working alongside Connect@Bangor - email@example.com, to talk about all aspects of well-being. You are under no pressure to speak; you can just listen, and you can email the Mental Health Advisers to request an appointment in the drop in session that follows.
