Permanent: A disability that impairs the student’s physical and/or mental ability to perform his/her normal work and activities for the rest of his/her life.

For example, temporary disabilities may include broken limbs, hand injuries, rehabilitation following surgery, or medical treatments.
During orientation at the beginning of each academic year, students are informed of the support services available. A letter is sent out to those students that declare a medical condition or disability on enrolment.
Parking for students with physical disabilities is available. Discuss your needs with the Student Welfare Manager and the medical nurse. More information can be found on Moodle.
