Improving Support for Disabled Students at UAL
Improving Support for Disabled Students
About 17% of our students are disabled – that’s just over 3,000 students, including 2,200 dyslexic students.
The University is investing in support for disabled and dyslexic students to ensure that they have a consistent, high quality experience. The University is also working to make sure that disability equality is properly embedded throughout the student experience. It is investing in staff development, to help ensure that all staff know how best to meet disabled students’ access needs.
Executive Board has set up the ‘Improving Support for Disabled Students’ Project Board to steer and lead these improvements over the next two years.
The QAA Institutional Review (Jan 2013) team formally affirmed the work of the Project Board and the planned improvements.
