Should I declare my disability on my UCAS form?

When you apply through UCAS, you can declare that you have a disability on your application form. For example, if you have been receiving support for your vision impairment at school or college you would declare using descriptor 58, ‘Blind or a serious visual impairment uncorrected by glasses’. By doing this it means your chosen course provider can start to put the right support in place for you well in advance of your arrival. Visit our ‘Choosing a university’ page for more information.
