If you are living with a mental health condition, ongoing medical condition or disability (including physical, neurological, intellectual, sensory, acquired brain injury, or specific learning difficulty), then AccessAbility Advisors can assist you to meet the requirements of your course.

The AccessAbility Hub may be able to assist with:
- advice on managing university study

The student's guide: Managing your study with a disability medical or mental health condition outlines what supports are available to you, how to activate supports and some tips on being successful in your study.
We are committed to providing equitable access to education under the following acts:
