Best Practices for the Inclusion of Students with Intellectual Disabilities in Higher Education

Australians with disability have the right to access all levels of education on an equal basis and without discrimination. This right is stated in the UN Convention on the Rights of People with Disability. However, at the moment young people with intellectual disability do not have many opportunities to attend university. Only two of Australia’s 43 universities run programs that support the inclusion of students with intellectual disability – Flinders University’s ‘Up the Hill Project’ and the University of Sydney’s ‘Uni2Beyond’ program. The research team wanted to know more about these two programs to find out what they can show us about including people with intellectual disability more in Australian higher education.
