As part of the continued development of our facilities we’re regularly looking at ways to improve the accessibility of our campuses to meet the demands of our students. Students with additional accessibility needs have a Personal Emergency Evacuation Plan (PEEP) in the unlikely event of a fire, and where we need to we’ll make changes to accommodate them in the delivery of their course.
