Support for students with disabilities

Distance learning offers flexibility that can be ideal if you have a disability, health condition, mental illness, or specific learning needs.

When you study with us, you get to choose where and when you study. Your don't have to worry about travelling or getting around a campus. And you can vary your hours to suit your needs.

Distance learning offers a more accessible system than traditional forms of study. Our specialised teaching methods, online course content, and study support will bring the classroom to you.

We also have a dedicated Disability Learning Support Advocate at our Library and Learning Centre. They can support and advise you with your studies.
