Uni 2 beyond: Courses at The University of Sydney for people with an intellectual disability

University of Sydney

Uni 2 beyond is a program that supports people with an intellectual disability to experience university life at the University of Sydney. The program begins in March 2017 and you can take part for 2 years, with a possible extension to 3 years.

You can study some subjects at the university that you’re interested in without enrolling in a degree. This is called ‘auditing’.

Audit students:

  • Attend lectures and tutorials
  • Work on individual projects
  • Receive a certificate of attendance

Who can apply:

People with an intellectual disability who would like to experience university.

About the program:

  • When you’re offered a place, uni 2 beyond coordinators will help you choose one or two classes that you would like to do at University.
  • They will inform you of the social activities and clubs at the University of Sydney.
  • You will receive a university timetable.
  • You will have a mentor to help you feel comfortable.
