Skills development

The Skills for Learning webpages contain advice, resources and activities on university study, academic writing, maths and IT skills.

Welcome to the Library

Welcome to the Leeds Beckett Library Disability Support web pages. All of the Library website is relevant to you, but here you will find information about the facilities and support we provide to disabled students. Please use the tabs above to find out more.

Information about the accessibility features in the Sheila Silver Library and Headingley Library and who can accompany you in the Library is also available.

Study Support Software Finder

The Study Support Software Finder will help you to identify Disabled Student Allowance (DSA) software, Library software or free software which will help with a range of needs or tasks. For example if you are looking for software which will read text aloud to you, or change the colours of your screen.

University Disability Support

Information about how to access support and what support is available for students with disabilities / dyslexia is available on the Disability Advice website. They offer Disability Advice Drop-Ins sessions at both campuses. Or you can contact them via:
