Studying as a disabled student can be logistically complex, with numerous things to consider. During my Undergraduate degree I received a lot of support from my (small) University, and after I graduated I took 3 years out. I returned to University to begin a Master’s this autumn, and have written this series of articles on returning to study whilst disabled. I’m hoping it will help other students facing the same challenges I faced.
