Disabilities

The University and College regularly support students with disabilities, long term health conditions or specific learning difficulties.

We strongly encourage you to register and discuss your individual situation with the University's Disability Advisory Service (DAS) as soon as possible so that you can benefit more quickly from any available support. The DAS provides a wide range of information and advice, and can also assist with organising disability related support.

Once registered with the DAS, they will contact the College to pass on any relevant information (as per your approval) so that we are better placed to offer assistance. You are also welcome to contact the College directly with any queries or information, via the Academic Registrar.

The University's Disability Common Framework statement sets out the guiding principles that underpin the procedures for supporting disabled students at Oxford.

College Contacts

The following College staff members oversee and coordinate provision for students with disabilities at Wolfson:

Disability Lead: Senior Tutor

Disability Coordinator: Academic Registrar

The Disability Coordinator is the first point of contact in both Colleges and Departments, and looks after practical arrangements for students with disabilities. 

Alternative Examination Arrangements

If you wish to apply for alternative examination arrangements, we strongly recommend that you do so as soon as possible. The DAS can advise on applications for alternative arrangements related to a disability. If you would like to apply for alternative arrangements due to an injury or illness, please contact the Academic Registrar.

Details on possible examination provision may be found on the University website

Adam Smith as Jurist
Tuesday 12 November - 5:30pm to 6:30pm

Adam Smith is world-famous as a founding father of economics, yet his work as a jurist is much less well known. He worked for decades on a book that would have spanned the ground between his moral philosophy and the empirical sociology and economics of Wealth of Nations, but never completed it, and on his deathbed he asked his executors to destroy his manuscripts.
