The Disability Service provides advice, information and practical study-related support to prospective and current students who have sensory and physical impairments, mental health conditions, long-term health conditions, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)/ Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), Dyslexia and other Specific Learning Differences (SpLD) and students who have an Autism Spectrum Condition (ASC). They are available to assist undergraduate, postgraduate, full time, part time and online distance learners.

Our Counselling Service currently offers ‘virtual’ therapeutic support through Microsoft Teams. In order to manage demand, counselling is ‘One-at-a-Time’, meaning that we aim to offer on appointment per person at the time of need, rather than a block of future appointment. In order to book an appointment please email counselling@abdn.ac.uk.
