Biomedical Sciences: I have a disability. Is Oxford suitable for me? What about all the old buildings?
Although many of the buildings in Oxford are old, many improvements have been made to help disabled people to study effectively, and you may be surprised at the accessibility afforded by teaching facilities and colleges.
In addition, much of our teaching takes place in the modern Medical Sciences Teaching Centre, which is equipped to accommodate visitors with mobility, visual or hearing difficulties.
Whilst you do not have to disclose a disability on your application form, if you tell us about your disability we can discuss appropriate solutions and put them in place – this includes during the admissions process. It might be best to visit Oxford, and explore the facilities during an Open Day.
If you are offered a place at Oxford, the University's Disability Office will arrange a customized study-needs assessment for you, and advise on the sources of financial support that may be available to support you during your time at Oxford.
