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. For more information, please visit the Access Centre or contact: email@example.com
Dyslexia Team Specialist Study Skills and Strategy Support
To arrange one to one remote specialist study skills and strategy support from Bangor University , please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
For Healthcare Science students already accessing specialist study skills and strategy support from Glyndŵr University – this support will continue to be offered remotely by Glyndŵr until further notice.
Your allocated tutor will be able to advise you regarding the setting up of online support as relevant. For example, via Skype for Business or through Microsoft Teams which is accessible through your student account.
Students should email their mentor as per usual, or if they have any general queries, email: email@example.com

We are offering email, Skype, phone, and face to face appointments. Students can complete our self-assessment form to give us more information about their needs.
The Mental Health Advisers webpage also has lots of useful information and links to online resources.

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 (phone, Microsoft Teams video 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 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.
The mental health charity, MIND provides some excellent links to coronavirus and wellbeing. A link to practical suggestions about looking after your wellbeing is included at the foot of the page.
