Tertiary Education Experience (TEE)
Our Tertiary Education Experience is a program for high school students in Years 9 - 12 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
- 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.

My story: Julia Robertson
Julia is studying a Bachelor of Psychology degree at Griffith and accessed Student Disability and Accessibility to make sure she had the right support in place to help her succeed.
Our Uni-Reach program encourages the higher education ambitions of students at partner high schools in the Brisbane, Logan, Gold Coast and northern NSW regions, where historically there has been a limited transition into university study.
Our program includes:
- the Griffiti magazine for Year 10 students
- Year 10 REACH awards for students who have demonstrated academic potential in the face of challenging life circumstances
- school visits and on-campus event for year 11 and 12 students.
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
