The majority of philosophy lectures or classes are held at the Philosophy Centre or the Examination Schools.
For access information about the Philosophy Centre, see:
There are hearing loops installed in the Lecture Room and Ryle Room. Lectures there are not normally amplified, but this could be arranged on request. Please contact the Administrator (firstname.lastname@example.org; tel. 01865-276925).
For access information about the Examination Schools, see:
Hearing loops are available in the Examination Schools. Lectures may be amplified in the following rooms at the Examination Schools (North, South, East, West Schools). For further information: contact: Mr. K. Thomas (email@example.com; tel.01865-276905).
Some lectures are held in colleges. For information on access to any lectures held in colleges, please contact the Administrator if you need additional information (firstname.lastname@example.org; tel. 01865-276925). If there are access difficulties for any lecture series which you wish to attend, please inform the Administrator to discuss adjustments or surrogates.
The Philosophy Faculty offers a wide range of lectures, and there is flexibility about which lectures you attend in which term. Hence, even if you have a declared disability, the lecturer may not be aware that you have chosen to attend a particular lecture series. All our lecturers are informed of the University’s Guidelines on Giving Accessible Lectures, but it may be helpful for a lecturer to be reminded, for example, that a student who lip-reads intends to attend the lecture series. If you do not wish to discuss your needs with the individual lecturer, you may like to flag them to the Disability Officer (Dr Hilla Wait, email@example.com; tel. 01865-615349), or the Undergraduate Studies Officer (Mr James Knight, firstname.lastname@example.org ) or the Graduate Studies Officer (Ms Iris Geens, email@example.com), who will try to ensure that the lecture is presented in a way that meets your needs.
Where handouts are available for individual lecture series, we can arrange for them to be available in advance or produced in alternative formats. It is also possible for lectures to be recorded, or the Disability Office can advise on arrangements for note-takers. In order to record lectures, you should fill in the University’s Pro Forma for Recording of Lectures (PDF format), and send this to the Disability Officer (Dr Hilla Wait, firstname.lastname@example.org). You should then forward details of any lecture series you intend to record to the Undergraduate Studies Officer (Mr James Knight, email@example.com ) or the Graduate Studies Officer (Ms Iris Geens, firstname.lastname@example.org), who will alert the relevant lecturers.
