Once you’ve registered with us, we can work closely with administration and academic departments to ensure the appropriate teaching and assessment arrangements are made.
We’ll work with you to develop a personalised academic plan, detailing your course requirements and the recommended adjustments and one-to-one learning supports required to assist you. This is used to formally communicate to staff within the University the adjustments that you're eligible to access throughout the semester. Your academic plan will be reviewed each semester.
As set out by the Disability Standards for Education 2005, we are required to make reasonable adjustments to ensure students with disabilities have equal access to education.
That means we are responsible for ensuring an even playing field for all students, whether that be in relation to enrolment and admission, academic performance, or use of University facilities and services.
To determine what’s reasonable in each situation, we look at:
We also consider whether there are any other reasonable adjustments with the same benefit that would be less disruptive and intrusive.
We will handle any information you provide us in accordance with the University’s policy on privacy.
Under some circumstances, we may need to disclose your personal or health information to an external organisation or person. We will only do this if:
To protect your privacy, we keep any information we have about you secure and separate from any other student information held by the University.
We provide demographic data about access, participation, retention and success of students with a disability to the Australian government, as a requirement of receiving government funding to assist students with disabilities.
This information is linked to your student ID number, but not to your name or contact details. The demographic data we disclose is from your enrolment records and only covers the period of your candidature.
