HE Additional Learning Support


Accessing Additional Learning Support at Leeds City College University Centre

Leeds City College University Centre welcomes all students with disabilities and learning difficulties and we want all students to achieve their potential.

The University Centre has dedicated support staff to help students get the most out of their studies and their time here. Students with specific learning difficulties (such as dyslexia, dyspraxia, dyscalculia, etc.), long-term physical disabilities, sensory impairments or mental health difficulties, (e.g. depression anxiety, etc.), can arrange to discuss their needs and difficulties with a member of staff who will work with them to determine what support might be available. If appropriate, they will work with the student to help them apply for Disabled Student’s Allowance, (DSA), which could provide one-to-one study skills support, mentoring and assistive technology. 

If you are a student and think you have difficulties which will affect your studies, talk to your tutors and the college support staff and find out what support is available – the sooner the better.


Accessing academic skills support at Leeds City College University Centre

Academic skills support for HE students is provided by a team of librarians based in the Academic Support Hub in the Study Zone of University Centre. Support sessions are offered both to groups in class at the request of lecturers, and on a one-to-one or group basis in the Academic Support Hub. Support sessions are offered on a range of academic skills, including academic referencing, academic reading and note-making, academic writing, and research skills. To book a session, drop into the Academic Support Hub, or contact your librarian through the LRC website, accessible from the Student Intranet and the College’s G Suite for Education.
