Student Access & Inclusion: Creating an inclusive learning environment for all students – Let us know if we can help

Published On September 21, 2020 | By Alana | News

Do you have a documented health condition that is impacting your studies?

Are you managing carer responsibilities alongside your units?

Do you live in a remote location or struggle with sufficient internet access for your course?

If any of these sound like you, or you feel that your circumstances or conditions mean you’d benefit from some additional support then we have a team just for you.

The Student Access & Inclusion Team is here to provide practical support and assistance to any student who is impacted by 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. They are also able to offer support to incarcerated students, members of the defence force and a variety of other students. The service is completely confidential.

This support could include:

  • Permission to take a guide dog to lecture theaters
  • Extra time to complete exams and assignments
  • Permission to have breaks away from the Webcam
  • Permission to use a computer in an exam
  • Rest breaks in intensive schools, quizzes and exams
  • Alternative formatted materials

For example, if you suffer from an anxiety disorder, you might be able to sit your exam in a separate space away from other students and have allotted rest breaks. Another example is breaking a bone, you might be able to receive extensions for assignments due when the incident happened or even utilize a computer or scribe in an exam setting.

 The services available aren’t limited to what is listed above  so if you’re wondering whether your situation would qualify then we’d highly recommend getting in touch with the team.

 You can get in touch with them by either giving them a call on (02)  6773 2897, emailing accessinclusion@une.edu.au or putting a request through AskUNE.
