Learning Accommodation Agreements (LAAs)

Good universities recognise that students learn differently. Where learning differences are rooted in serious health complications, significant neural divergence, or extenuating personal circumstances, those universities work to accommodate those differences in agreement with teachers and regulatory bodies. Accommodations usually take the form of additional flexibility, support and guidance offered to students, and may be temporary or permanent, depending on the situation.

At UCU these arrangements are formalised in Learning Accommodation Agreements (LAAs).
