Curtin Dubai has a wide range of support services and facilities to assist students with a challenge of any kind or a carer of a person with a challenge to enable equitable access to their studies and assessments.
Curtin Dubai’s Student Support Team provide dedicated support and accessibility services to help you at university.
If you have a challenge that impacts your ability to study at university, or you’re caring for someone with a such a challenge, you can access a range of support services and assistance to help you succeed at Curtin.
An Accessibility Advisor will be assigned to work with you to develop your individually customized Curtin Access Plan (CAP), a document that outlines the type and level of support you require at the Curtin Dubai campus.
The Accessibility Advisor will discuss the conditions of the CAP document with you and it will only contain information that you agree to release. It can include information about your challenge if you wish to disclose this information.
The final CAP will be emailed to the student by the Accessibility Advisor and it will be the student’s responsibility to ensure their document is shared with the Academic Coordinator and the Unit Coordinators each semester.
The CAP may include provisions such as:
Our campus is fully-equipped to assist students with navigating their way around campus. This includes provision for those in wheelchairs or using assistive devices for walking.
An Access and Inclusion map is provided to students at the time of admission which highlights wheelchair accessible routes, accessible parking, and other access features at Curtin Dubai campus. The Curtin Dubai emergency plan also includes provision for quickly and safely evacuating anyone with mobility challenges.
If you are concerned about how you will access the Curtin Dubai campus please email the Student Service Centre at [email protected] and they can advise you about accessible routes around Curtin Dubai.
If you have a significant caring role for a relative or friend who is a person of determination and your responsibilities are impacting on your studies, you may be eligible for support and adjustments to your study program and a Curtin Access Plan.
