University Information Day for Disabled and Dyslexic Learners


This event is being run in collaboration with our member HEIs in the AccessHE Disability Forum, and aims to give disabled and dyslexic learners a taste of what life at university could be like for them.

The event will give attendees the opportunity to:

    • Visit a university and hear from universities themselves about the support they offer learners with disabilities and dyslexia
    • Listen to current disabled students talk about their own experiences with university life
    • Find out more information about the needs assessment, disabled students’ allowance and assistive technology support

A draft programme of the day can be found here and a flyer can be found here.

The event will be held on 7 July from 9.30am-4.00pm at the University of Greenwich. The event is targeted at learners in years 11, 12, 13, those in further education and on Access to HE courses.
