Explore how to make Higher Education more inclusive

According to research by the UK government, disabled people are around half as likely to hold a degree-level qualification than people without disabilities. It raises an important question: how can we make education more inclusive?

On this course you will learn about different aspects of inclusion and digital accessibility experienced by students, teachers and support staff in Higher Education.

You’ll explore the barriers experienced by disabled students, the role of inclusive practices and hear firsthand from students about the impact inclusion has had on their studies.
