New report reveals how disabled PhD students can be better supported23 October 2023
Disabled Students UK is delighted to announce that over 1300 students participated in the Annual Disabled Student Survey. This incredible response has made it the largest survey conducted on the disabled student experience of accessibility in Higher Education in the UK.
Understanding the diverse challenges that disabled students face while pursuing their studies, Disabled Students UK acknowledges and appreciates the valuable time and effort contributed by these students. By coming together in this way, survey respondents are forging a path towards a more inclusive future for all disabled students across the country. The resounding support for the survey was evident as countless students and staff members rallied to share the survey, leading to responses from over 90 universities.
The next crucial step for DSUK is to closely analyse the vast data collected in collaboration with our team of dedicated researchers. The results of this extensive analysis are expected to be unveiled in the upcoming autumn season on our Access Insights website. Universities with a substantial number of respondents will have the opportunity to access institution-specific summary results on our website, while universities who are members of the project will additionally receive tailored reports to aid them in enhancing their accessibility measures.
