Kent and Medway Progression Federation (KMPF) has produced a new resource to support disabled students with applying to university.
The Guide has been put together collaboratively by the Kent & Medway Progression Federation (KMPF) and the universities in Kent and Medway to show disabled people the array of support available at university. Eleven disabled students from all four of our partner universities were involved in the production of the guide, from concept through to content creation.
It contains more information on applying to university, and outlines the support and finance and the support available from the four universities in Kent.
It also features student stories, a helpful terminology guide and a list of useful websites.
Joni Chase, KMPF Development Manager, said, “We’re delighted to launch this resource and believe it will be tremendously helpful for all disabled students.
“The Guide aims to show that whether you have dyslexia, a hearing impairment, chronic illness, a physical disability, or experience mental health difficulties, and if you’re diagnosed or not, there are teams of qualified professionals at university who are dedicated to empowering disabled students to succeed.”
