I feel like they were not able to give full support, as dyslexia was not on official record, and not even on the assessment they organised, they then failed to accept the report and diagnosis, I was therefore unable to get the full support I needed.
It was also hard to get hold of student support at times and even the tutor, this therefore made it hard to get full support I needed, plus there was no support if I wanted to attend the campus. I am looking to go back to study again, but I am worried again about not getting full support. Even more so that rules from SFE have changed on loans and disabled people that distance study, that the disabled will get a maintenance loan when they don’t need one – I can’t seem to get a straight answer on it. I can’t have anything affecting my ESA which is my only income.
If I could get the right support this time for all of my conditions and my disability I would go back to study for sure. But I need to know for a fact that any study and anything from student finance would not affect my income, then I would be back furthering my education.
