Are the same supports available on all of TUS' campuses?
Yes, all of the same supports are available. The Disability Officer travels between campuses regularly.
The Thurles and Clonmel campuses also have a part-time Disability Learning Advisor.
I did not qualify for the Disability Access Route to Education (DARE). Can I still receive supports?
Yes, all students with documented needs are eligible for supports, as appropriate. A recommendation from the appropriate professional is still needed, regardless of your entry route.
I experience a disability and am interested in TUS. What should I do?
Please contact the Disability Officer at firstname.lastname@example.org. We can then arrange a chat about your concerns over the phone or online through Microsoft Teams, or we can schedule a pre-entry consultation at any point during the year.
I only need supports for exams. Who should I speak with?
The Disability Officer will be happy to meet with you to determine appropriate exam supports. Please contact us via Disability@lit.ie or on 061 293112.
I will need a note-taker/PA/sign language intepreter while studying at TUS – what should I do?
It is important that your CAO Evidence of Disability form clearly indicates the need for support personnel. This form must be completed by the appropriate professional.
Please notify the disability office of your requirements as soon as possible via email@example.com or on 061 293112.
What documentation will I need?
TUS accepts the same documentation required by the Disability Access Route to Education (DARE). Please see http://accesscollege.ie/dare/providing-evidence-of-your-disability/ for full details. Please note that this documentation will be accepted by TUS whether or not you apply to DARE.
Who is eligible for support from the disability office?
Any student (full-time or part-time) who experiences a learning difference, disability or long-term medical condition is eligible for support. Exactly what these supports are will be determined during the needs assessment.
