I am a MSc student and have a 2:2 in my BSc - I am also dyslexic.

Does anyone have experience of applying to do a PhD and being dyslexic?

What kind of entry problems did you face? Did you state your dyslexia on your application form? Did any universities comment on your dyslexia? Did you face any discrimination?

Are your sponsorship chances reduced? Or can you receive extra grants to help with dyslexia (i.e. for computer packages that can help etc)?

Also do any academics/university staff have any views or comments?

Thank you everyone!
