Thank you Lauren
My assessor knew exactly what questions to ask to find out what my needs are. I was also very surprised at the range of options there are to maximise my learning potential and am looking forward to progressing with my degree with the recommended support. My assessor was absolutely excellent and I was genuinely moved by the understanding and recognition shown to how frustrating it is to have the academic ability but not be able to achieve my potential as a result of my disability. My assessment far exceeded my expectations and myself and my partner were extremely happy with the professionalism of my assessor and the depth and breadth of knowledge pertaining to my difficulties. Far exceeded my expectations. Excellent. My assessment encapsulated everything we discussed and was an excellent overall assessment of my needs which will help me throughout my entire degree journey.Thank you for a very beneficial experience which will pay dividends throughout my study. I was very apprehensive about the assessment and being able to have a home visit helped massively and my assessor was everything I could ask for and more. Very impressed Also,a few months into my course a tutor told me about another piece of potentially useful course orientated software. I contacted my assessor and I had the software within a week. For anyone apprehensive about going through the assessment it is very informal and there is so much more to offer in ways of support. Please, if you’re in need of any assistance, please reach out because it’s already changed my life.
Thank you Ragan
I had a brilliant assessment. The assessor was very professional, kind, courteous, very sympathetic to my conditions and extremely warm and down to earth. I can actually say that I enjoyed my time with the assessor, which is not what I was expecting as I usually find assessments emotionally upsetting. Thank you to the assessor for all your hard work – I am truly grateful.
Thank you, Alethea.
The assessor made sure I was totally at ease and comfortable, and explained everything efficiently without being condescending. The assessor was brilliant throughout the entire assessment, and I left very happy. Overall a very positive experience.
Thank you, Joe.
Our experience with Broadbent & Co has been first class from start to finish being an organisation run to the highest professional standards. Immediately upon meeting her assessor, my daughter Charlotte was made to feel at ease from the outset with her feeling fully supported and listened to throughout what was a very thorough, concise and engaging assessment conducted by an expert in his field. No stone was left unturned with all Charlotte’s needs being identified and explored. The assessment was solution-driven providing Charlotte with a personalised support package which has proved invaluable to her during her studies at university. I personally was very impressed with the manner in which the assessor conducted the assessment and subsequent report, I knew my daughter was in ‘safe hands’. It was evident that this assessor truly cared and delivered an exceptional service, thank you. Indeed after the actual assessment the support provided by the assessor was on-going ensuring for a smooth transition of support services in a prompt and timely fashion. Nothing was or indeed is too much trouble. Charlotte felt empowered as a result of the friendly, approachable and strategic assessment conducted by the assessor with her feeling reassured as she began her university life.

The assessor at Broadbent and Co constantly provided outstanding help and support and nothing was too much trouble. The assessor was able to sort out a couple of minor issues with suppliers quickly and the ongoing support was unwavering. The assessor is a credit to your company and has inspired me to do well with my upcoming degree course.
My assessor was very patient throughout the assessment. The assessor listened to all my comments and suggested various solutions to help with my problem, all of which were very useful. The assessor was friendly and answered all my questions in great detail with confidence and understanding. Overall, the experience I had at this centre was extremely positive.

Great service, was made to feel very welcome and comfortable during the assessment. I was a little nervous but the assessor was very friendly and made me feel relaxed. Thank you
Thank you, Demi.
I visited this company on the 1/09/17 and was really impressed with the service I received.. I felt very comfortable and positive about my experience here. The meeting was professional, welcoming and very productive. Thank you for all the help.
Thank you for this positive feedback.
The help I received from Broadbent and the staff were amazing. They have made sure that I am ready for a university with the help and the support I need. Without DSA and the help from Broadbent & Co, I would have struggled in my university life and I will recommend them.
Easy to find at Huddersfield Uni. I was very happy with the assessment today. The assessor was very informative with lots of advice on Apps and Software to assist me. I was pleased how much the assessor wanted to provide me with advice to prepare me for my journey to a successful time at University.
Thank you, George for taking the time to leave this feedback.
I have to say the assessment process was fantastic. The assessor has managed to help build confidence in my ability to study and overcome the self-doubt you can have when approaching a piece of work. I definitely left the assessment with a totally different mind set towards studying. The assessor was passionate about showing me the different software and apps which are out there. As well different coping techniques and strategies for learning. I would highly recommend this company.
Thank you for your kind words Claire.
I was a little apprehensive when I received my invitation to attend the assessment and was on the verge of a panic attack when waiting to be seen. Ben the Broadbent & Co assessor was made aware that I was waiting and he came to meet me a little earlier than arranged. Once in the meeting room, Ben made me feel at ease he totally understood what I was feeling and he was very patient as he went through all the help that will be provided; by the end of the meeting, I was totally relaxed and really looking forward to starting my degree. I totally agree that the support put in place is totally invaluable and has made me feel a lot better about attending the course. I am now sure with the continued help of Broadbent & Co I will succeed.
Thank you Marie

Thank you for taking the time to leave this review Martin.
Disabled friendly venue and parking. I was not sure what to expect, or what help to ask for, but the assessment was a positive experience, supporting me to understand what help might be useful as I begin my degree. Friendly and professional.
Thank you, we glad you found the experience positive and professional.
Can’t say anything but nice things about Broadbent & Co. My appointment was at 10 and the assessor came straight away at 10. Lovely service, very friendly, made me feel welcome and comfortable. Very easy to talk to and would recommend anyone to get your assessment done there.
Thank you for your feedback.
I have nothing but good news to say about Broadbent and Co. The staff are friendly, consistent and caring. You can tell they are really passionate about what they do, always rooting for their students.
My assessor, in particular, was able to really identify the challenges that I was facing during my studies and was able to tailor my needs to me, not just a general approach used for all students. I have depended on them since my first degree in 2012 and I can say their standard of service has not dropped even a little bit.
I am so thankful to the whole team for looking after me, I can definitely say for a fact I would not have made it through my first year of medical school without your services.”
Thank you for your kind words.
“As the carer of a Student, I can’t express enough thanks to Andrew and his team. Not only was the service 100% from day one but continued to be so for 4 years, until she graduated. Anytime I had difficulties with the DSA, the Needs Assessor and the BCO team were there to assist me. They made the whole experience easy and the initial report was in such depth it was obvious that they fully understood the complex needs of my granddaughter and her disabilities.”
Thank you for these kind words, Pat.
I found the assessment process quite comfortable and I say quite comfortable because I didn’t know what to expect. The assessor made me feel completely at ease. The company is of a high standard, they have enabled me to study in a way I didn’t think I could.”
Many thanks, Lara. It was a pleasure to help you out.
I thought this assessment centre was extremely helpful and shown a great deal of determination in assisting myself through this process. On arriving, I was kindly greeted and offered any cold or hot beverages and asked to take a seat. I was kept surely up to date of when I was going to be seen and was acknowledged by all passing employees. The assessor made me feel very relaxed and comfortable and guided me both professionally and emotionally through the process and has shown a great commitment in succeeding the best possible outcomes from my session. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone and would rate this 10/10 with no faults whatsoever!”
Our staff are extremely encouraged by your positive feedback.
The assessor was very friendly and extremely professional was very understanding in regards to my needs and very knowledgeable about the equipment that I would require. Thank you so much for helping me.”
Thank you, glad we could help Mariam.
Did not realize how much support I actually needed. As a more mature student I thought ‘just to get on with it’, but after a comprehensive, friendly and very informative assessment my time at Uni should be less traumatic (for all). Thank you for all time and effort I’ll do my best to implement all the aids recommended.”
Many thanks for the positive feedback Clive.
These guys are brilliant, they were so helpful during the assessment and even after the assessment. They were friendly, supportive and very understanding, I am very glad that I had chosen this company to do my assessment and would recommend these guys to anyone. They really made my university education much more smoother than I expected to be. Thanks Broadbent&Co.”
Thank you for your kind words.
I cannot thank Broadbent & Co enough, they have gone above and beyond to help me and now I feel much more confident in my academics. It’s very refreshing to meet people who genuinely care about you and your education. I can’t compliment them enough.”
Thank you for your kind words.
Before the assessment I had no idea how useful it would turn out to be. The staff are very friendly over email, phone and in person, I certainly felt like I was being treated as a person rather than a number which was great. During my assessment, the assessor was very thorough and made detailed notes whilst still being very attentive, we discussed many items and technologies that may have been helpful during my studies, many of which were things I was not aware would be available! All equipment was arranged and delivered efficiently and I made good use of it all! Great experience with Broadbent & co overall, no complaints.”
Thank you Alex for your comments, they are very much appreciated. All our staff try and make what can be a challenging experience for students, a positive experience.
Assessor was outstanding and to say I am pleased with all the help and advice is an understatement. Of course I know the help Assessor and I discussed is not guaranteed but even so, the advice was invaluable.
I wasn’t going to apply for DSA because I hate to ‘kick up a fuss’ but I’m so relieved that I did. All the considerable concerns I had re my disability (which is a relatively new issue for me) and studying have been halved at least.
I’m very aware that often people only write to complain so I’m bucking the trend! You, the staff and your partners at Bolton University have been nothing short of fantastic going the extra mile at every opportunity.”
Thank you, glad we could help.
