A PEEP is a bespoke plan for individuals who may not be able to reach an ultimate place of safety unaided, or within a satisfactory period of time in the event of an emergency. Please consider the following questions:
You are responsible for drawing attention to changes in circumstance that should prompt a review. If you decide a PEEP is not currently required but circumstances change you are responsible for informing your Disability Adviser / Wellbeing Officer to request this is implemented.
Please provide further details about possible support requirements or any adjustments you may have received previously. (This can include possible areas such as accommodation adjustments, exam arrangements, personal care requirements (this will need to be arranged through alternative providers, we advise you how to access this, if needed), mobility support etc)
(Please note that arrangements that were in place at a previous institution may not necessarily be made at UoB)
Please attach appropriate evidence below (this will be required before any adjustments can be put implemented). Further guidance about appropriate evidence can be found at https://intranet.birmingham.ac.uk/student/welfare/disability/access.aspx
(please note prescriptions, JCQ Form 8 from school and appointment letters will not be accepted as appropriate evidence).
We are aware that it can be difficult to obtain appropriate evidence. If you are having difficulties obtaining evidence please contact us for further advice by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Disabled Students' Allowance (DSA) is funding available to eligible students to cover some of the extra costs you may incur because of a mental health problem, long term illness or any other disability.
If you haven’t applied for Disabled Student’s Allowances, further information about the process and eligibility criteria can be found at https://www.gov.uk/disabled-students-allowances-dsas
If you have already undertaken a needs assessment, please attach a copy of your report below:
Accessing support through SDS requires us to hold information in relation to your disability. This could include (but not limited to) registration forms, evidence, DSA forms, correspondence and Reasonable Adjustment Plans.
Dependent on your individual needs your information may need to be shared with the following people within the institution as appropriate: relevant staff within your College, Examinations office, Accommodation, Library services, Timetabling etc. This information will only be shared on a need to know basis to ensure that your support can be implemented.
Where additional support is required, information may also need to be shared with external providers such as assessment centres or support providers to help facilitate support.
For more information about how your details may be shared please visit https://birmingham.ac.uk/privacy/index.aspx.

PGA staff must ensure that students know how to access this support and are clear about the number of sessions available.
- If extensions are needed due to disability-related reasons, PGA staff should discuss the mechanisms for this with the student.
- It may be advisable to create an academic plan to enable the student to manage their deadlines.
- Accommodations may be needed for presentations, for example extra time to prepare when on a residential course.
- It is the PGA’s responsibility to ensure that the student is fully aware of when and where their examinations will take place. The PGA is responsible for organizing the exam venue and providing an invigilator/ reader/ scribe. The student has been advised that their future exams will take place at the Belfry.
