Universities provide support to students with disability to ensure they can access and participate in university courses and programs.
At the time of enrolment the young person may wish to speak with the enrolments officer regarding accessing support.
Each university has a different process and provide their support in a different way. Shown below are the links to the disability services pages of each Queensland university.
The Australian Government provides funding annually to Universities through the
Higher Education Disability Support Program to assist in removing barriers to access for students with disability.
This funding can cover services and equipment to assist students with disability such as:
- provision of alternative materials (including braille and audio tapes for students with vision impairments)
- Auslan interpreting services for hearing impaired students
- the purchase of equipment, such as voice recognition software and mobility scooters.
