The department of Disability and Education is comprised of academics with established reputations in learning, teaching and research. Our department is internationally recognised for leading research in literary and cultural representations of disability.
The department aims to challenge and change all aspects of dehumanising practice, fully acknowledging the lives and experiences of people who are disabled. Within our degrees, you will explore the relationship between disability and education at all life stages and in a wide range of educational contexts. You will also gain experience on your compulsory 3 week placement in your second year, where you will have the opportunity to work in schools or organisations, such as DaDaFest.
