Enabling Transitions

Students with disabilities now make up approximately 5.2% of the total student population at third level. Institutional readiness to facilitate access, transfer, and progression for students with disabilities is a critical factor in ensuring successful transition and progression within further and higher education.

The SOAR Project in partnership with schools aims to enable a smoother transition to higher education using assistive technologies and develop a holistic transition programme for targeted students with disabilities.
