Into Higher Education 2017

Written by Disability Rights UKDate 23 Aug 2017

Into Higher Education is a guide from Disability Rights UK for anyone with a health condition, learning difficulty or disability thinking about studying in higher education starting September 2017.

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 2017 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.
