All universities do this if you are officially disabled, ie you would need documents and proof

My understanding is that computers/laptops are no longer completely free: you need to stump up a certain amount of money towards them (I read £200 but that was when they were talking about doing this, rather than actually doing this) :fyi:

But generally speaking if you can prove a disability and your student finance funding body recognises you as having a disability, you will then be entitled to a Disabled Students' Allowance package tailored to your exact needs. This may or may not include computer and related software. As far as I know, they can no longer recommend Macbooks :nah:

You also have to remember that you'll only get a laptop if your assessor feels you need one. Not every single disabled student will get a laptop.

Hello, i am currently at Newman university and the equipment you will receive if you are dyslexic will be individual to you. depending on the type of areas you struggle ect. Its not the uni that provides the assessment for the type of equipment you need or the equipment itself its disabled student finance and call student finance and then ask for disability and then they will give you the information suited to you.

If you're an English student wanting to study at uni and require a laptop, you have to pay £200 upfront for it.
