Starting university is a big step, one that often begins a long time before students finally arrive on campus. For many students who have received support or adjustments at school or college the transition to university can be confusing and hard to navigate, not least because the language and terminology used about Special Educational Needs (SEN), disability and support is very different. This can prevent some students from accessing the support they need. A guide has been produced to help explain the differences in language and terminology so that students and their teachers/supporters can understand what they need to do to access the support and adjustments they need at university.
