    The services that we offer include:

    • Assessments of need
    • Advice and guidance about the needs assessment process
    • On-going support to resolve issues about equipment and support recommendations
    • Suitable equipment recommendations and practical support strategies to overcome barriers to learning
    • Recommendations for reasonable adjustments
    • Assistive technology training to help you to use your recommended equipment effectively
    • Liaison with support providers to ensure support is arranged quickly and effectively

    Both NLRAC and the Bloomsbury Assessment Centre are accredited by the Disabled Students Allowances Quality Assurance Group (DSA-QAG) as approved assessment centres, which provide a quality assurance service for assessment centres and suppliers involved in the delivery of the DSA in England and Wales. 

    Appointments for needs assessments

    Appointments for both Assessment Centres are available from 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday, with assessments available at NLRAC at evening and weekends on request.

    To make an appointment for either centre or to find out more about our services and waiting times, please telephone:020 8411 5366 or email:adminac@mdx.ac.uk

    Please note that the North London Regional Access Centre (NLRAC) and the Bloomsbury Assessment Centre operate a flat fee policy; this means the cost of your assessment that is stated on the letter from your funding authority also covers any queries or top-up assessments that you may need for the duration of your course – there will not be any additional charges to you from the Assessment Centres.

    Expected waiting times for a study needs assessment are up to 15 days, but appointments are typically arranged within one week.
