UTS, like all educational institutions in Australia is obliged under the DIsability Discrimination Act (1992) (opens an external site) to provide students with a disability with the same educational opportunities as everyone else.
The Disability Standards for Education (2005) (PDF, 209kB) were formulated under the Disability Discrimination Act 1992 (DDA) to provide a framework to ensure that students with disability are able to access and participate in education on the same basis as other students. These Education Standards set out to provide further clarity and specificity to both education and training providers as well as students with a disability.
Additionally, the Australian Vice Chancellor Committees's Guidelines relating to students with a disability (2006) (opens an external site) guide Universities to establish good practice in meeting the needs of students with disabilities.
The UTS Access and Inclusion Plan 2015-2019 reflects our commitment to moving beyond principles of accommodation, to a culture that celebrates the contributions of people with diverse abilities within our community. Find out more about UTS Accessibility and inclusion.
