Dear Student,
Important - please note:
The University of Bedfordshire is supportive of students with disabilities joining the trip,
and year-on-year we are making adjustments to assist students with disabilities. If we can
identify your needs in advance of the trip then we will be able to put the appropriate
arrangements into place for you.
If you have not told us about your disability:
While we make all reasonable adjustments to our provision, we may not be able to meet
your individual needs if we do not have the opportunity to asses them in advance, and that
could impact negatively on your experience or even your ability to take up your place on the
trip.
If you have told us about your disability:
You may be asked for additional information or invited to attend an interview with the
Disability Team. This is so that we can properly assess your individual needs and
ensure that we have the best possible chance of meeting them. Please do provide any
information that is requested and come in to see staff if asked, otherwise you - and we -
could find ourselves in a position in which it is difficult or even unsafe for you to take up
your place on the trip.
Disability Notification

Are there any health related issues that could impact on your travel?
