How can I arrange my assessment?

Contact AccessCentral if your Funding Body have written to you to confirm your eligibility and asked you to contact an assessment centre.

You can get in touch with AccessCentral by email, by telephone (0121 222 5362 or 023 80 989 178) or text, when we will agree a convenient date and time for your assessment.  This date will be confirmed once you have sent the following information which is required no later than five working days prior to the assessment to enable the Assessor time to prepare.

  • Evidence of your disability (a photocopy is sufficient), for example, a letter from your Doctor or Consultant or an Educational Psychologist report.
  • Confirmation letter from your Student Finance England/ Funding Body that you can have a Study Strategies Assessment.  AccessCentral requires this confirmation in writing (a photocopy is sufficient).
  • Completed Assessment Booking form sent to you by AccessCentral with the provisional booking letter.

If we do not receive this documentation AccessCentral will regrettably have to cancel your appointment.

We will also send you written confirmation of your assessment appointment, together with a map and directions on how to find us, and a few details on what to expect during your assessment.
