Should you find yourself in difficulty of any kind while you are at Balliol, there are a number of people in College to turn to for help and advice. 

Balliol places great emphasis on supporting its students throughout their time in Oxford. This relies on good communication between you and the College, and we strongly encourage you to talk to us from the very beginning about any concerns that you may have.

The start of the academic year will be very busy and you will be expected to manage the academic demands of your course from your first week. It is important therefore that you inform us as early as possible of any health, disability or welfare issue, so that we can work with you to ensure that you have appropriate support right from the start.

We encourage you to disclose any particular needs when you complete the Balliol Freshers’ Form and to contact the Student Finance and Support Administrator for further discussion. For students who may need particular arrangements for exams – for example, extra time or use of a word processor – we would advise early contact with the Administrator so that measures can be put in place in good time.
