Disability support

We offer support services to students who have a disability, injury or health condition - permanent, temporary, episodic or fluctuating. Studying can be challenging at the best of times, which is why it is important that you consider your need for support, and get in touch with Disability Services as soon as possible.

Your appointments with Disability Services are free and confidential. Information will not appear on your student record, or be made available to others without your prior consent, except where required by law e.g. to preserve health or safety.

Disability Advisers

QUT Disability Advisers (DAs) work across the three campuses. If you wish, parents and carers may attend your appointment with you. At your first appointment we will discuss the nature of your condition, and its likely impact on your studies. Each student is different, so the support required will vary depending on your capacities and the requirements and demands of your course. Your DA will explain the types of supports that are available and how a Disability Service Plan can be implemented to ensure you receive the support you need as seamlessly as possible.

Please note: students are required to make an appointment with a Disability Adviser each semester if they wish to remain registered with the disability program and receive ongoing support.

Examples of support include:

  • assessment support, including altered exam arrangements
  • a note-taker program
  • assistive technology support
  • alternative formatting of course materials
