Each year, around 30,000 disabled students enter higher education – a number that has been rapidly increasing over the last few decades.
Understandably, if you have a disability or long-term health condition, you may have some additional concerns about moving from school or college to university.
Universities and colleges recognise this and will provide additional support to help you throughout the process of applying to higher education and beyond.
KMPF is also working with CXK to offer disabled students considering higher education individual careers guidance sessions to explore your next steps in depth with a trained and experienced career guidance professional. CXK can help you to explore the pros and cons of university for you as an individual, explain the support that may be available to you at university, signpost you to research your options, and advise on writing personal statements. This is available to all SEND students and is not dependent on having an EHCP.
