Centre members Deanna Grant-Smith and Bernd Irmer’s briefing paper on Disability Access to Australian Higher Education is now available as part of the Centre for Justice Briefing Paper Series. Their paper (issue 11) evaluates how well Australian universities have performed against the parity targets of the widening participation in education agenda for students with disability. The paper focuses on the key trends in participation access and completion by students with disability, how these trends differ by university group and type of higher degree, and what impact they might have on achieving the widening participation agenda.
This research was funded by the National Centre for Student Equity in Higher Education.
