University of Lincoln Assessment Centre (ULAC)

We are committed to helping all of our students fulfil their potential and get the most from their time at Lincoln. For UK students in receipt of a Disabled Student’s Allowance (DSA) for a disability, learning difficulty or medical condition, the University’s Assessment Centre can provide a needs assessment to identify any support you may require in your studies.

This support could be in the form of specialist equipment, software or services and will be specific to your needs and the course you are studying.

Apply for a needs assessment.
