10th September, 10:00 to 16:00
Eastern Gateway reception area, Brunel London University
Brunel London University recognises that being new to university and starting the academic year in Welcome Week may be a challenge for some students.
This transition event is aimed at those students with an Autistic Spectrum Condition who may prefer to begin to familiarise themselves with the campus beforehand and be part of a smaller event. On the day, students will be given the opportunity to see a variety of facilities including: halls of residence, sensory room, library, Student Centre, assistive technology centre etc.
Students will also be invited to meet with Disability Advisers from the Student Wellbeing Team and find out what support is available at Brunel. Students will also be given an overview of the Disabled Students’ Allowance (DSA) and how to apply for it. It is recommended that students bring any evidence of their specific need on the day as this will help to get support in place as quickly as possible.
The Student Wellbeing Team will discuss transitioning to university and what to expect once students arrive and provide some useful information about university systems such as Blackboard and evision. Student ambassadors will be available to answer questions about student life. There will also be an opportunity to have lunch with other prospective students.
Parents/guardians are welcome to attend this event with the students’ consent and will also have the opportunity to ask any questions to our Disability Advisers.
