Study Support Plan

If you declare a disability in your application, you will be asked to complete a Study Support Plan (SSP) and provide medical evidence of your disability or dyslexia.

By completing the Study Support Plan, you will help us get a clearer understanding of what we can do to support you during your studies. 

What you need to do to get support

  1. Fill in our SSP web form once you've enrolled at Birkbeck. The form should take you around 10-15 minutes to complete. To do this, you will need to log on to your My Birkbeck account and click on your My Birkbeck Study Support Plan. 
  2. Once you've submitted the required information, we will confirm your evidence and ask you to check our recommendations so they meet your needs.
  3. From there, we will make your school and relevant departments aware of your support requirements. We will also liaise with relevant members of staff to arrange adjustments for you. An example of this would include ensuring teaching is delivered in a way that is accessible to you. 

If these aren’t in place when you begin your studies, or your support needs change at any time, it is important that you contact us
