Disability Support

Harris Manchester College welcomes students with disabilities and makes reasonable adjustments to facilitate students with disabilities accessing programmes of study in accordance with the University’s Common Framework for Supporting Disabled students (see http://www.ox.ac.uk/students/welfare/disability/study).  Departments assess applications from students with disabilities on the same academic grounds as those from other candidates.

We advise candidates to consider, before applying, the requirements of their chosen programme of study, identifying any elements that might present particular difficulties.

We strongly recommend that candidates contact Harris Manchester College to explore facilities and discuss specific needs if they wish to apply to the College. The Disability Officer at Harris Manchester is Ms Victoria Lill who can be contacted on victoria.lill@hmc.ox.ac.uk or (01865) 271009.

It is essential to contact the department, college and Disability Advisory Service as early as possible in the application process, because it can take time to adjust arrangements and organise support.  Harris Manchester’s has two contacts at the University Disability Advisory Service: Sarah Jones, who manages mental health disabilities (sarah.jones@admin.ox.ac.uk), and Rachel Steadman (rachel.steadman@admin.ox.ac.uk) who manages all other disabilities.  Both are based in the University Disability Advisory which is located at 3 Worcester Street.  For further information about the University Disability Advisory Service please see https://www.ox.ac.uk/students/welfare/disability?wssl=1.

Details of the Oxford University Disability Equality Scheme appear on the Disability Advisory Service website.
