Seeking survey participants: Supporting students with disabilities to succeed in and after higher education

National Centre for Student Equity in Higher Education (NCSEHE) Equity Fellow Tim Pitman is currently seeking survey respondents for his 2020 project on supporting students with disabilities to succeed in and after higher education.

Tim is investigating how Australian universities can best support students with disabilities, during their studies and beyond. He would like to know what barriers students with disability face, both at university and when getting the work they want after graduation.

Tim wants to hear from students with disability as well as staff working in higher education institutions, regardless of whether or not their job role involves supporting students with disability.

Students completing the student survey will be eligible for entry into a prize draw. There will be ten winners, each receiving a $100 Amazon gift voucher.
