Soorenian, Armineh (2009) Disabled International Students in UK Universities. In: Degrees of Independence: Providing inclusive learning in Higher Education, 16th - 17th April 2009, University of Huddersfield, Huddersfield, UK. (Unpublished)

This presentation will be based on my Ph.D study. The project is going to comment on the relevance of inclusive educational theories and policies within English universities, with reference to disabled international students’ experiences. The project is both timely and appropriate as there is an acute shortage of documentation on the application of policies for the inclusion of disabled students and disabled international students in particular in English universities. The methodology is essentially qualitative but has, where possible, adhere to emancipatory principles. Data collection strategies include content analysis of relevant literature and policy statements, and field studies involving focus groups and semi-structured interviews with disabled international students in English universities. The study aims to provide an up-to-date snapshot of disabled international students’ experiences in English universities in order to facilitate meaningful theoretical and policy insights.
