Learn more about the DARE scheme and hear from students speaking about accessibility and inclusivity on campus.

DkIT prides itself on being an open, inclusive and welcoming place of learning for a wide range of students with diverse needs. This session focuses on supports offered by the Disability Offices aimed at ensuring students can thrive and reach their potential while studying at DkIT.

The session provides an overview of the Disability Access Route to Education Programme which is available at DkIT. Our Disability Officer, Geraldine Kneel provides an overview to the application processes and discusses how students can engage with the Disability Office. She will also provide a general overview of accessibility at DkIT.

The webinar includes short presentations by our super impressive current students, Ella, Jack and Connor who speak about their own experiences on campus. They provide personal accounts of the Disability Service and offer guidance and tips to prospective students you may be considering progressing to Higher Education in September.
