Disability Rights UK blog post: Our Into Higher Education guide can help you.
Into Higher Education is a guide for anyone with a health condition, learning difficulty or disability, thinking about studying in higher education starting September 2016.
This guide aims to answer common questions such as whether colleges or universities will be accessible, how to choose a course and what support will be available. It also covers the student finance system and has up-to-date information on tuition fees, repayment methods and the support that will be in place for 2016 entry.
In the student stories, six people living with a health condition, learning difficulty or disability write about their own positive experiences, as well as any challenges they have faced, providing a valuable insight into what it’s like studying in higher education. As well as taking advantage of the support on offer, the students talk about the importance of their own creativity, perseverance and motivation.
The guide also contains a useful resources section listing further websites, publications and organisations (education, health and disability-related) which you may find helpful.
