What other support is there for students with disabilities at St Hilda's?
The College has a 'Disability Advisor' - a senior member of College who is there to offer practical help and support. Arrangements for assistance can be made on an individual basis: the College aims to respond to the needs and requirements of all students. St Hilda's JCR is a friendly, supportive and diverse community. The individuality of all students is respected and valued. As a student with a disability you will be able to take a full and active part in JCR life. All students at St Hilda's have a 'Personal Tutor' as well as their academic subject tutors. Your Personal Tutor provides continuous pastoral care and support, and is there to offer welfare advice.
