Advice and Support
Funding for an SpLD assessment
Can a student be referred for a Specific Learning Differences (SpLD) support with a Specialist teacher through the University?
The School does not fund diagnostic assessments. Students are able to fund an assessment independently and would be signposted to PATOSS - a quality assured provider.
Disability Adviser available
Are there specialist staff available to talk to within the service? Is there a disability officer or a disability adviser for students to talk to?
Wellbeing Services is your point of contact to discuss disability, health, neurodiversity (dyslexia, ADHD, autism etc.) or wellbeing issues.
Support from academic staff
Is advice and support available from academic staff within the faculties of the University? How do students access this advice and support?
All LBS programmes have an assigned programme office and students are allocated a Programme Manager who will support you throughout your time at LBS. Programme Managers are involved and invested in the delivery of the programme, creating and ensuring you have a positive student experience.
Staff continuity and understanding individual needs
Are the specialist disability staff in the team able to offer a personalised, bespoke response to a student’s needs? Where possible, is continuity provided for the student in meeting the same Disability Adviser and/or mentor so the student can get to know them over time?
The School is committed to providing an accessible and inclusive experience for all students. Access and inclusion needs are managed on a personalised and individual basis and reasonable adjustments are communicated, where possible, without reference to specific disabilities, conditions or diagnosis.
One to one mentoring support
Are there any additional services available such as mentoring, counselling services or a buddy scheme to help a new student to settle in if needed?
There is a range of one to one support:
- Mental health mentoring
- Specialist study skills
- Pastoral provision via programme office
- Wellbeing appointments
One to one / group study skills
Does the institution provide support with arranging One to one/Group study skills sessions?
The Wellbeing service will signpost or refer students to specialist services, including specialist mentoring or study skills.
Social and Peer Support
Adapted accommodation in halls
Is adapted accommodation and specialist equipment available in halls of residence?
The School does not have LBS halls; we have a small number of rooms via our collegiate allocation with University of London.
Does the institution offer a standard level of assistive technology to disabled students?
We are able to arrange access to assistive technology.
How has your Disability Support offer changed in light of the Coronavirus pandemic? Are in person appointments currently suspended? If prospective applicants would like to register with the Disability Service, how do they go about doing this currently?
Wellbeing Services and counselling has continued to deliver one to one appointments albeit remotely. Prospective students are able to attend appointments remotely too. Please email: firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
