This resource was previously called 'Supporting the achievement of deaf young people in higher education'.

Information for higher education staff on how to support deaf young people in higher education, including university and apprenticeships.

The resource will help staff in higher education to:

  • make sure that deaf students have the support they need to make good progress, take advantage of the opportunities of higher education and successfully complete their studies
  • take the reasonable steps required under the Equality Act 2010 (or the Disability Discrimination Act 1995 in Northern Ireland) to make sure that deaf students are not treated less favourably than other students.

This resource is for:

  • admissions staff
  • disability advisers
  • lecturers, teachers and personal tutors
  • higher or degree apprenticeship providers.
