Good afternoon Beth

Many thanks for your response. I can confirm that the University will not provide figures for academic year 2017/18 as it is not yet a completed dataset. I can also confirm that we have figures relating to students who have a self-declare disability of visual impairment for academic years 2013/14-2016/17 should you wish to receive them.

Kind Regards
