All Students: Introducing Student Access and Inclusion: realise your full potential

Published On February 27, 2019 | By Luke | News

The Student Access & Inclusion Office (SA&I) is here to create an inclusive learning environment for UNE’s diverse population of students. They are here to support and assist future and current students with practical assistance and advice who may be affected by an injury, long illness, disability, learning difficulties or other health condition, as well as for students who are carers of family members with a disability or health condition.

SA&I also offer support to students who live remotely and have unreliable internet access, incarcerated students and provide advice to Defence Reservists and Emergency Service Volunteers. They also support  students who are formally recognised Elite Athletes and provides strategies that ensure that they are not unduly disadvantaged academically or financially as a consequence of participation in their sporting commitments.

SA&I’s goal is to assist students to reach their full academic potential and to participate fully in university life on an equitable basis.

The purpose of our service is about access to education and the whole student experience. This means that students are able to:

  • participate equally with their peers in all course activities including assessments and examinations –  this includes course activities that occur both on and off campus.
  • access verbal or written information, lectures, tutorials and practicums, computer labs, or the libraries in an appropriate format.
  • access student-orientated activities and facilities.

If you think you may benefit from some extra support, you can contact SA&I to discuss your situation.
