  • identify and develop skills needed for university study
  • understand supports available such as assistive technology and learning support
  • get a realistic view of university life including tips for transition to uni from current student mentors
  • connect with Griffith student mentors who also have disabilities.

Preparing for study

Successfully entering post-secondary education takes planning, preparation and careful consideration, for all students, and is crucially important for students with disability.

The Australian Disability Clearinghouse on Education and Training (ADCET) has useful resources to assist people with a disability to make informed choices about studying and prepare such as:

  • choosing a course
  • preparing for post-secondary study
  • financial considerations
  • NDIS support

If you are considering Griffith then go to our apply for study page to explore study programs, entry pathways, scholarships and support.
