Your learning contract
- recommends reasonable adjustments so that you are not disadvantaged by your condition
- gives relevant staff the information they need to support you
The contract is relevant to Sheffield Hallam University only and is not a legal document.
How much personal information does the contract contain?
It can help to explain how your condition affects you so that staff can understand why certain adjustments have been made, but you don't have to share this information if you don't want to.
Who will read my learning contract?
Your learning contract will only be read by staff who need to put support in place for you. This will always include your course tutor.
Will other students know?
We won't tell other students that you have a learning contract. It's up to you if you want to disclose your disability to other students.
What if I need to make changes to my support?
Your support needs may change during your time at Sheffield Hallam. This may be due to a change in your studies or a change in your disability. You can contact us at any time to review your learning contract.
