Applying For Disability Support
Before proceeding, please be aware that by providing your health data, you are making a disclosure of 'special category' data to the TUS disability office. You should also be aware of the following points regarding your personal data.
Within the portfolio of supports we can provide, some are the subject of specific funding provided by the Higher Education Authority, (HEA). In the event that the particular support you require is specifically funded by the HEA, we will need to provide your data, including special category data, to the HEA. This is provided only to enable the HEA to fulfil its duty to coordinate, monitor and evaluate its Fund for Students With Disabilities;
Personal data collected as part of this application process will be released WITHIN TUS only in line with strict access-controls. This means that it will only be provided to those who need that data to ensure you have the supports you require.
All of this processing falls within purposes set-out within the TUS Student Privacy Statement, which can be viewed in full here.
If you have any questions or concerns about the processing of your personal data, the Information Compliance service at LIT can take an independent view and communicate with you in confidence: firstname.lastname@example.org
