AbstractThe participation and experiences of disabled students in higher education has been the focus of attention in recent years (HEFCE,2018; Equality Challenge Unit and the Higher Education Academy, 2010; Brewster, 2016) in the United Kingdom. Across Europe there is a recognition that inclusive education and associated best practice is needed to facilitate the study of students with SEN/disabilities (European Agency for Special Needs and Inclusive Education, 2016). Both the EU and national governments support and acknowledge the inclusion of under-represented groups in higher education and the active engagement of disabled people in higher education, supported by the European Disability Strategy and the United Nations convention of the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (Riddell, no date).
