Access and Disability

Supports and schemes available at GMIT

GMIT Three students outside

At GMIT, we believe in equality of access and participation for all students. 

We provide a range of supports and services for students applying to GMIT and attending full-time and part-time courses within the Institute.

Here you'll find information on how we can support Students with Disabilities (such as physical, sensory or specific learning difficulties such as dyslexia).

We also provide support for students whose personal or socio-economic circumstances mean they need extra support to enter and/or attend college.

 

HEAR/DARE Schemes

GMIT is a member of the Higher Education Access Route (HEAR) and The Disability Access Route to Education (DARE).
