The Deakin Promise in Learning is to 'offer brilliant education where you are - and where you want to go'.
The advent of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) in Australia has increased the public's awareness of people with disability and the issues and challenges faced by people with disability living in the community.
Increasingly, employers will seek graduates who can demonstrate an awareness of disability issues and the principles of inclusion and equity for people with disability in society.
At Deakin University, we aim to support our students in their quest to become inclusion practitioners, able to apply their disability knowledge and awareness in a variety of fields and occupations.
Students can choose courses ranging from a Bachelor of Health Science majoring in People, Society and Disability, Bachelor of Occupational Therapy or Social Work, to a Master of Education majoring in Special Educational Needs. Alternatively, students can select from a number of disability-related electives to augment their studies with a greater understanding of disability and diversity.
"This unit definitely opened my eyes to the experiences of individuals with a disability. It also has made me more aware of the difficulties and barriers that individuals, families and service providers face in advocating and standing for the basic human rights of individuals with a disability."
