My daughter is applying to art schools in London (UAL, Kingston, London Met and Westminster) and has Dyslexia. Which of these school has the best support systems and accommodations for learning differences?

Hi! @hreefe

We are happy to hear that your daughter is applying to the Kingston School of Art.

Here at Kingston we have lots of support systems in place to help everyone in all different circumstances. Friends that I have that are also dyslexic and at the art school have found the university and tutors to be extremely understanding and supporting through your learning and other issues such as money, or socialising. As well as this, the Kingston disability team is an additionally great system to use.

Have you been able to visit the university for an open day? I would really recommend this as you and your daughter can then talk to a variety of support teams that we have at the university, meet future tutors and see whether the campus and town is something that your daughter would feel comfortable with and be excited to join. If you visited, you would be able to talk to the accommodation team or ask students about the accommodation at Kingston and which is best suited. I stayed at Seething Wells for my first year and really enjoyed it, finding lots of support while also gaining my own independence. It is in the next town but there are 5 buses an hour from Seething Wells taking you straight to the Kingston centre or campus in 5 minutes. The free buses are easy to use with an app that can track them and provide live updates too.

I hope this helped and please let me know if you have any questions!
