Our Tertiary Education Experience is a program for high school students with disabilities to check out their university options. TEE can help students:
- choose a degree aligned with their dream career
- identify and develop skills needed for university study
- identify support networks available
- get a realistic view of life on campus and what is expected of university students
- connect with Griffith student mentors who also have disabilities.
Our program suite includes:
- annual on-campus program for Years 9, 10, 11 and 12 students with disabilities including specific programming for students who are blind or have low vision, or who are deaf or hard of hearing
- biennial on-campus professional development program for secondary education staff and interested community organisations.
Our two-day Uni-Vision program for vision impaired students allows them to experience the University’s learning environment using assistive technologies and specialised software.
All TEE and Uni-Vision activities are enhanced by the involvement of Griffith student mentors who also have disabilities.
