What is it like to go to university with Dyslexia?

Dyslexia can be a difficult disability to go to university with. 10% of the population suffer with it, so as a result, universities will have a number of specific practices in place to help with this as well.

We recommend when applying to university, you make the university aware of this prior to attending, make sure you have an up-to-date psychologist’s report for your university and look into the possibilities of Disability Allowance when at University as a way of being able to accommodate any special help you may need that the university cannot offer.
