Are you a disabled student planning to go to university this year or in the near future? Or a parent or supporter of a disabled student? If yes, the LSE-SOAS event providing practical information on accessibility in universities will be ideal for you. Read on to find more details.

Each September a collaborative LSE-SOAS event aimed at  providing practical information for prospective disabled students, parents and supporters (for example, transition teachers, careers advisers etc.) takes place on a Saturday. You do not have to be planning to study at LSE or SOAS to be eligible to attend and any disabled student starting to think about university is very welcome (fifteen year olds have attended in the past and found the information helpful).

This year the event will take place on 29 September 2012 in the Brunei Gallery at SOAS. The event is free to attend and catered but places are limited due to the size of the venue. To book a place, please contact diversity@soas.co.uk.

To find more details about the event, download the 2012 flyer ‘How Accessible is University?‘ The flyer also contains a booking form that you can fill in and return to reserve your place. To view presentations delivered at last year’s event, please see the LSE Disability and Wellbeing service website.
