Bucks Students’ Union loves disabled students
A campaign to introduce electronic submission of assessment to help students whose disability makes it difficult for them to travel onto campus
The Union believes we must step into the 21st Century and ensure that we have submission options that support students that are disabled and may not always be able to attend university. The union acknowledges on certain courses the nature of assessment will not accommodate electronic submission and this should be reflected in course documents at the appropriate level and clearly articulated at induction. Most courses should now have access to the system and we are continuing to lobby for this to be accepted more widely.
Advice, support and guidance from our Advice Centre on issues ranging from benefits to extra financial support
The Advice Centre listen to and support students on accommodation, legal issues, personal problems, money advice, international problems and course problems.
The Welfare Advisors use experience and knowledge on student issues to influence University thinking to help create a positive impact on your time at Bucks.
Please feel free to contact any of us if you are experiencing any problems, all advice Centre staff operate within a confidentiality policy

The purchase of an accessible minibus to travel to Union events and activities
The Students’ Union own two mini-buses, one of which has an accessible lift. This bus can be used for Student Union activities such as sports fixtures, volunteering, training and conferences and events. If the mini-bus is not available, we will do our upmost to ensure you can attend the activity of your choice, through the use of suitable hire vehicles.
Lobbying the institution to ensure that where double doors are controlled electronically, they open in an accessible manner
The Students’ Union has worked with the institution on a review of the access to the University. This will enable us to ensure that all doors have disabled access and will open automatically when your Student I.D is recognised.
