A year into the pandemic, Disabled Students UK sent out a survey asking disabled students about their experiences of Higher Education during this period. We gathered the voices of more than 300 students – painting a picture of a tumultuous time. Less than a quarter of respondents said they had received the disability support they required. At the same time, the widespread availability of lecture recordings has constituted a huge leap forward in accessibility. We asked students:
“What lessons do you hope that your university learns from the pandemic to become more accessible moving forward?”
From the answers we created the report Going Back is Not a Choice – Accessibility Lessons for Higher Education.
