What you need to know about Inclusion and Accessibility at CQUni

Making successful progress at TAFE or university can sometimes be challenging if you have a disability, illness, medical or mental health condition.

Keep reading to learn more about how the Inclusion and Accessibility Service can help while you are studying.

Make learning easier for yourself

The Inclusion and Accessibility Service can arrange free learning resources, adaptive equipment, technology and software for students who have a disability, illness, medical or mental health condition. They can also coordinate support staff to assist registered students who require additional help with their learning.

Service is personalised to suit your needs

During your first appointment with a Disability Advisor you will discuss the nature of your condition, the likely impact on your studies and your rights and responsibilities while registered with the Inclusion and Accessibility service. Based on all information provided as part of the registration process, an individual Accessibility Plan will be developed to confirm the support arrangements the University will put in place for you.

Each student is different, so the support required will vary depending on your needs and the requirements of your course. If you wish, parents and carers may attend your appointment with you.

Visit the Accessibility webpage to find out more information about how to register for support with the service. Any student can make a confidential appointment to speak with a Disability Advisor to discuss their needs on 07 4930 9456.

I am a CQUni alumnus, who graduated back in 2010. Straight after graduating, I took a job in media, and later returned to CQUni working full-time as Student Communications Assistant. I remember all too well the panic fuelled ‘all-nighters’, getting lost on campus, confusion over systems, and the general feeling of being unsure. I'm excited to share my experiences and provide some insights into university life.
