We estimate that between 20-25% of students at the University have some form of visible or invisible disability, and Te Ratonga Whaikaha|Student Accessibility Service (TRW|SAS) is here to provide support services, assistance, and advice to ensure that you make the most of your time here and achieve your academic goals.

Te Ratonga Whaikaha|Student Accessibility Service offers a large number of supports to our registered students based on the evidence provided including:

  • Practical support (e.g. interpreters, notetakers)
  • Assistive technology (e.g. screen reading, voice recognition software, Otter notetaking)
  • Information in alternate and accessible formats (e.g. electronic, braille, )
  • Special arrangements for exams (e.g. extra time, separate room, reader/writer)

Any student enrolled in an assessed course, who has a disability, medical condition, specific learning difficulty, mental health condition or a temporary impairment that affects their ability to study is eligible to register with TRW|SAS at any stage of the academic year.
