Significant Ongoing Illness

Some students have ongoing medical conditions which may impact on their studies. These are often referred to as ‘hidden disabilities’ and examples include Diabetes, ME, Haemophilia, Cystic Fibrosis, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Crohn’s Disease and many more. Many conditions may be stable, others may be variable and some will be progressive. The impact on the student depends on the severity of the condition, but in most cases stamina is affected.
