The University of Salford are hosting a Pre-16 Disabled Learner Aspiration event. The aim of the event is to give learners who may access additional support at university, including learners with disabilities, learning difficulties, long-term health conditions and mental health conditions, a chance to meet graduates who can discuss their own journey and experiences within Higher Education. It is a great opportunity to network with these graduates, as well as meet current students and ask Disability Support staff questions about the support they will get in Higher Education. The day will also include a Higher Education Uncovered workshop as well as a campus visit led by student ambassadors.
