De Montfort University has been shortlisted for Outstanding Student Services Team in the Times Higher Education Leadership and Management Awards. The judges selected the university in recognition of its decision to implement Brain in Hand and the positive impact this has had. 

The university chose to introduce Brain in Hand for autistic students, helping to create independence and life skills for students who may otherwise struggle with adapting to university life.

Jo Cooke, Executive Director of Student and Academic Services and Associate Chief Operating Officer, said: “I’m so proud of the team and the students for their commitment to implementing this support system, which makes a real difference to those students with autism who may otherwise struggle with adapting to university life.

“It helps our students with participation, communication and independence. It is such an important project and it is fantastic to have the work recognised on the THELMA shortlist.”

  • I wish that there had been something like this when I was a headteacher of a challenging school for those individuals who were either autistic or suffered from anxiety. It would have added another level of support.
