Lecture and Tutorial Support

Assistance to participate in lectures, tutorials and seminars for students registered with the Special Needs Office needs to be negotiated with each unit coordinator with support from the Special Needs Office.

Reasonable adjustments may include:

  • Permission to record lectures/tutorial (If part of their SAP, students may borrow a digital recorder from the Special Needs Office for use on campus)
  • Level access to venues needs to be negotiated prior to commencement of the trimester period.
  • Permission to take guide dog to lectures/tutorials.
  • Access to lecture theatres with a hearing loop. For a list of lecture theatres with hearing loops, see Hearing Loops.
  • Use of computer and assistive technology to listen to, participate in and take notes of lectures.
  • Use of FM radio, where the lecturer wears a small microphone and FM transmitter that the student provides at the beginning of each lecture/tutorial.
  • Participation support for the use of visual materials, such as transcription of relevant material.

The Special Needs Office does not provide academic support, such as mentors or participation assistance. If you require academic support, please see the Academic Skills Office.

If you are a first-year student, you may also contact the First Year Advisor at your School to talk about support services available.

There are accessible toilets on UNE's campus in Armidale.
