Non-Academic Services

I&AE works with different stakeholders to ensure that students with disabilities and special needs are able to receive relevant support to make their learning journey successful. The following are some non-academic support services provided by I&AE.

Advisory on Assistive Technology Devices

Assistive technology is important to some students with disabilities and special needs. Assistive devices and software can help students increase their functionality and access to learning materials.

I&AE may refer students to external agencies for professional assessment before deciding the best assistive technology for students to use in school. In addition, I&AE has an assistive technology library with some common assistive devices and software available for students to loan on trial before making a decision to purchase.

Counselling and Student Care

I&AE works in collaboration with the Office of Development and Facilities Management (ODFM) to ensure that students with mobility challenges are able to access classrooms and facilities with minimal assistance. Whenever necessary and feasible, ODFM will make arrangements to eliminate physical barriers so students who are using wheelchairs can gain access to classrooms and other facilities.

Dedicated Accessible Transport Service

Special accessible transport for students with mobility difficulties (permanent or temporary) to travel around NTU campus during semester time.

Industrial Attachment & Internship

I&AE collaborates with the Career & Attachment Office (CAO) and SG Enable to work with employers on internship and career opportunities for students with special needs. 

Together with CAO, I&AE organises special career coaching sessions for students with disabilities and special needs with skills like resume writing and job interviews.

Special Arrangements for Halls of Residence

I&AE and the Housing and Auxiliary Services (HAS) identify accessible halls of residence for students who are wheelchair users. In addition, I&AE works with HAS to provide priority housing arrangements for students with disabilities and special needs. 

Transition Support

I&AE conducts mobility and orientation for students with mobility challenges (wheelchair users and vision loss) to help them familiarise with the NTU campus so that they are able to navigate around campus independently. Whenever necessary, AEU will work with caregivers, therapists, medical doctors, and teachers to prepare students with disabilities and special needs to transit from junior colleges or polytechnics into NTU.
