What about Distance Learning, Study Abroad, Field Trips and Work Placements?

Institutions must take action to ensure disabled students have the same opportunities as others to benefit from distance learning, study abroad, work placements and field trips.

The resources below may be useful sources of guidance and information. The AccessAbility Centre often has copies of reports available for loan and access to other similar guidelines.
