Abstract

The article presents evidence from a systematic survey of disabled (n = 172) and non‐disabled (n=312) students regarding their learning and assessment experiences within one higher education institution in the UK. This study builds upon previous work in the sector, with the aim of gathering evidence to inform inclusive policy and practice for the benefit of all students, disabled or non‐disabled. The findings indicate that, while disabled students confront barriers of access in their learning and assessment, there are similar difficulties they share with non‐disabled students.
