If you have a disability or impairment, our Disability Support team can support you to participate as fully as you can in learning.
Contact the Disability Support team if you’re thinking about studying at AUT – we can help identify the support you need for your studies before you arrive.
We use New Zealand Relay to help Deaf, hearing impaired, speech impaired and Deafblind people with contacting the Student Hub.
You can also tell us about your disability when you apply to study at AUT. At that point, we will ask you if you have a disability and if it will affect your study. If you answer ‘yes’, we will contact you to discuss the support you’ll need.
We’ll invite you to a needs assessment interview so we can work with you to identify the support you need during your studies.
To make sure we can give you access to resources you might need, we need to see documents that verify your disability or impairment. We’ll tell you what documents we’ll need before your interview.
Some types of support we may offer you include:
We are committed to equity of access and opportunity for students, staff and visitors. AUT supports the principles of Kia Ōrite: Code of Practice for an inclusive tertiary environment, which enables students with impairments to achieve fully.
