Students with disability have the right to access and participate in education and training free from discrimination and on the same basis as other students. All education and training providers have obligations to ensure that these rights are upheld through the provision of an inclusive learning environment and inclusive teaching practices. This includes making reasonable adjustments to accommodate students with disability through all stages of their learning, from enrolment to graduation. It also includes ensuring the learning environment is free from harassment.

This section provides further information on human rights, obligations of providers, and actions to take if you feel you have been unreasonably discriminated against by a post-secondary education or training provider, or a prospective post-secondary education or training provider.
