We're a student-led society for students to come together to discuss, campaign and work towards making the education at our university fully accessible to all.

About us

About Us

Accessibility to Education UWS was formed for students to come together to discuss, campaign and work towards making the education at our university fully accessible to all. This includes improving the disability services, mental health services, care provisions and support for anyone who may need them. We want every student to have equal opportunities whilst studying at UWS, so that no one is disadvantaged with their learning no matter their circumstances.

Over the past year:

  • We have successfully implemented the Sunflower Lanyard scheme for people with hidden disabilities.
  • We have also introduced policies through student council, such as the inclusion of captions on image posts from the union and societies. 
  • We have helped put together a mental health focus group at UWS.
  • We are currently working towards the introduction of accessible bathrooms across all campuses.

We strive to continue to improve the student experience for all and would love to work on the projects that matter to you.

If any of this interests you, feel free to join the society, check us out on social media or contact us via our society email.
