Students with Disabilities and Learning Conditions

Our policy regarding students with disabilities and learning conditions

  • We may consider candidates with conditions, but in order for a student to achieve and succeed in our programme and the industry, she will need to have adequate and appropriate support from outside the school as well.
  • Some conditions, such as uncorrected or uncorrectable severe blindness or deafness, can preclude a student from qualifying and / or working in our industry.
  • You must supply a written diagnosis from a qualified specialist or medical practitioner.
  • We bear no responsibilities if we do not receive written diagnosis as defined above.
  • We cannot give additional assistance or special considerations without written diagnosis.
