There are two eligibility requirements to access the Accessibility Service:
1. The Accessibility Service is available for students living with a disability, ongoing medical or mental health condition. Disability includes a wide range of health conditions, such as:
- learning/neurological disabilities, e.g. dyslexia, ADHD/ADD, autism spectrum disorder
- medical conditions/ongoing illness, e.g. chronic fatigue syndrome, acquired brain injury
- mental health conditions, e.g. anxiety and depression
- vision, hearing and physical disabilities
- temporary injuries (e.g. broken arm) that require more assistance than can be provided via the Special Consideration process, such as exam provisions.
2. In addition to a documented or diagnosed disability or ongoing health condition, you will need to be admitted in a UTS course, or be a Prospective UTS student – find out more about the assistance offered to prospective students on our Prospective UTS students page.
If you are admitted in a UTS course you will need to Register to access Accessibility Service support services.
Please Note - The Accessibility Service does not assist with:
- Short term illness that can be accommodated via the Special Consideration process.
- Carer responsibilities or pregnancy related requests. Students with carer and pregnancy circumstances should access Information for Carers and are welcome to book in with the Counselling Service and/or make requests for Assessment Arrangements directly liaising with the Faculty Academic Liaison Officer (ALO).
- Students enrolled at UTS INSEARCH. INSEARCH students requiring Accessibility Service support can access the INSEARCH Academic Advisors. INSEARCH students applying to UTS are welcome to meet with the Accessibility Service as a Prospective student.
If you’re still unsure whether you’re eligible to access the Accessibility Service please contact us or make an appointment with an Accessibility Consultant to discuss your circumstances.
