Autism at University of Liverpool

Hi, I am planning on starting University of Liverpool in September, I hold an offer but I have multiple disabilities including ASD. And I require quite a lot of support

I have spoke to disability services while visiting and I they seem helpful and it seemed really good for my other disabilities. But I wanted to hear from students with autism that are studying there on specific support available and how they have been regarding Autism.

Ik about DSA but just want to know people experiences before deciding to spend 3/4 years of my life at a uni where I won’t be supported.
Hi.. it’s good you’ve spoken to the university about the support. I would highly recommend you get a needs assessment done and look in to getting your DSA support in place asap - it can take a while to get the ball rolling! With ASC/ASD you are allocated a Specialist Mentor who is specifically qualified and trained to work with students on the autistic spectrum. It’s not so much a case of studying for 3-4 years without support, it’s just making sure that when you have your needs assessment done you are not just dished out to a large agency but to a provider who actually cares about their students! Let me know if you need help with this - I can definitely make recommendations 🙂
