The REACH Partnership is teaming up with local HEI’s to deliver a higher education experience day for disabled students. The day aims to inspire and excite students with disabilities about the possibilities of attending University!
A group of student ambassadors, currently studying university courses, will be on hand to answer questions and share their experiences as positive role models. There will be a range of free resources to take away.
The event will consist of input from De Montfort University, Loughborough University and University of Leicester, giving students a varied insight into Higher Education and the range of opportunities that exist locally.
The day will consist of a number of different workshops aimed at discussing and showing the support universities provide for students with disabilities.
Workshops will include:
There will also be talks on the application process for attending university and what this entails, as well as a tour of De Montfort Campus.
This day is aimed at students who are thinking of, or planning to enter into higher education and will be open for years 10-13.
The event will take place on 28th February 2018.
If you, or a student you work with, would be interested in attending this event please email REACH@le.ac.uk
