Not knowing what will happen when you disclose can be a daunting prospect. As the services and support available can differ between each University, it is difficult to give you information on what will definitively happen during a disclosure discussion. However, we can advise you on what you should expect when disclosing and encourage you to think about your rights....
Expect to be treated equally:
Expect to have some discussion about how your difficulties may affect your university experiences:
After disclosing, you may feel less pressure and potential issues could be headed off before they occur:
You may be entitled to receive reasonable adjustments:
There is no right or wrong to whether you decide to disclose or choose not to. It is a personal choice and there will be pros and cons as with every decision. The I Chose To Disclose campaign is about putting you in control, giving you the information to make informed decisions about disclosing and empowering you so that you are confident in whichever decision you make.
