What is the Exeter Access Centre?

The Exeter Access Centre (EAC) was established in 2003 and is based within AccessAbility at the University of Exeter. 

EAC is a recognised assessment centre registered with and accredited through DSA-QAG (Disabled Students’ Allowances Quality Assurance Group).

EAC is also a member of NNAC (National Network of Assessment Centres). 

We have a team of specialist Assessors and offer DSA Assessment of Needs to disabled students, including those with specific learning difficulties (such as dyslexia or dyspraxia), physical or sensory impairment, mental health issues or long-term medical conditions.


Assessors work in collaboration with students, University/College support services, funding bodies and equipment and support providers in order to establish a range of appropriate and detailed support recommendations which form the basis of the Assessment of Needs Report. 

Assessments are provided to those studying in and around Exeter and the South West (mainly Cornwall, Devon, Somerset and Dorset), 
as well as to students from the region who are studying elsewhere within the UK

You do not have to be a University of Exeter student to access this service.
