Applying with a disability

The College is committed to using its best endeavours to ensure that all of its activities are governed by principles of equality of opportunity, and that all students are helped to achieve their full academic potential whether they have a disability or not.

Potential applicants and current students are encouraged to disclose disabilities and engage in collaborative and timely assessment of their support needs. Our in-house Welfare Team and College Admissions Office are available if you have further questions (undergraduate [dot] admissions [at] hertford [dot] ox [dot] ac [dot] uk, graduate [dot] admissions [at] hertford [dot] ox [dot] ac [dot] uk).

Here is a message from a current student about applying with a disability.

The University and College provide a very high quality of support for students with disabilities including generous funding. Further information can be found at the Disability Advisory Service
