You may record lectures if you are a disabled student who finds it problematic to take lecture notes.
You will need evidence to support this requirement, and to agree with the following procedures:
- Inform the Disability Resource Centre of your particular circumstances. This will assist the University in making an appropriate adjustment to improve your learning experience and will also help the University to facilitate the recording of lectures. You can do this by filling in the online Student Information Form, if you haven’t done so already.
- You need to sign the Recording Lectures Agreement and return it to the DRC.
Adherence to these procedures will ensure that the University is able to make a reasonable adjustment under the terms of the Equality Act (2010) in respect of providing equal treatment and equal access to educational opportunity for all students regardless of any disability, while respecting matters of intellectual property and copyright.
The University's 'Code of Practice: Reasonable Adjustments for disabled students' recognises recording of lectures on this basis as a reasonable adjustment.
