Carlow College, St. Patrick’s, hereafter Carlow College, is committed to a policy of equal opportunity in education and seeks to ensure that learners with a disability, learning difference or significant on-going health condition, have as complete and equitable access, as far as is reasonably possible, to all aspects of college life.

Academic Resource Office
Carlow College is committed to creating an environment where learners are comfortable in disclosing a disability, learning difference or long-term health condition. There is a dedicated Disability Service within the Academic Resource Office to provide prospective and current learners with appropriate information relating to the supports and resources available and, following a needs assessment, to make individual support recommendations based on the assessed need and College access to resources. Learners with a disability, learning difference or long-term health condition are encouraged to apply to the Academic Resource Office to seek supports where their disability could affect their ability to participate fully in any or all aspects of their programme.
