Dear Glyndŵr University,

According to your recently published QAA review Glyndwr University 'has a relatively high proportion of disabled students'. Under the Freedom of Information Act, I request you provide the following data.

How many students are supported at Glyndwr University in Wrexham each year?
What makes this figure disproportionately high?
What percentage of these students experience dyslexia?
How much is spent on identifying student support needs each year?
What tools and quality control methods are used to identify needs consistently?
How many students are refused support due to lack of funding?

Yours faithfully,
N. Jones
