The Accessible Education Unit (AEU) supports students with disabilities and special needs. AEU works with members of the NTU community to provide consultation and advice on academic and non-academic matters. 

Disabilities and special needs may include the following conditions:

  • Physical and Sensory Difficulties (e.g. mobility challenges, hearing loss and vision loss)
  • Social and Behavioural Difficulties (e.g. ASD, ADHD)
  • Learning and Language Difficulties (e.g. dyslexia, dyscalculia)

Medical documentation and/or specialist assessment reports are required for verification of disabilities or special needs.


Students with disabilities and special needs can approach AEU for assistance to access services and support such as:

  • ​Academic Assessment Accommodation
  • Access to Facilities (e.g. ramps to LTs)
  • Advisory on Assistive Technology Devices
  • Industrial Attachment & Internship
  • Special arrangement for Halls of Residence
  • Special Education Needs (SEN) Fund
  • Transition Support (e.g. mobility and orientation)

​Students may be required to undergo assessments to ascertain appropriate support services. These assessments may be conducted internally at NTU or externally by third-party service providers. In such cases, students may need to bear the costs for such assessments.

The Director’s Welcome Dialogue 2021 for Freshmen with Special Educational Needs (SEN) is organised by Student Affairs Office (SAO), Accessible Education Unit (AEU).

This dialogue session serves as a platform for freshmen with SEN to get to know staff members of SAO team overseeing support services for students with SEN. AEU will provide an overview of the various support services available to you in your learning journey at NTU.  Senior students with SEN will also be sharing their experiences in local university exchange, internship, and academic support services.

Students are welcome to ask for pointers and tips during the session!


There are many people in our society with visible and invisible disabilities. The Disability Awareness training will help participants gain a better understanding of the different conditions and have the confidence to better interact with people with disabilities/special needs.

The session will provide an overview of disabilities and special needs, highlighting some of the challenges they face, social and communication etiquette and helping participants consider how to include and engage peers socially and academically.

This workshop is organised by SAO and conducted by SPD.

What does digital accessibility mean?

This training session will cover Microsoft Accessibility features (e.g., screen reader, magnifier, dictation, immersive reader etc) and how can we make our work and communication accessible for all.

The two-hour hands-on session conducted by Microsoft Asia-Pacific will provide an overview of Microsoft Accessibility features on Outlook, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Teams and One Note. Participants will also learn how to use these features to create, collaborate and communicate inclusively.
