NUS is collaborating with Young Epilepsy on a project to better understand the experiences of higher education students with epilepsy. We want to know more about what support young people with epilepsy want and need to make the most of their time at university. It is important for us to establish what help is currently available and where there is room for improvement.
We will use the findings from the project to develop and promote better support services for students with epilepsy.
We are looking for students with epilepsy studying in higher education who would be willing to talk to Young Epilepsy about their experiences. Interviews would take no more than an hour and would be at a time and place of the participant's choice.
You can contribute to this project by:
Participating in an interview (if you have epilepsy),
Passing this information on to a club or society for disabled students, or
Promoting the project directly to your members.
If you'd like to help promote this to your students or get involved in the project in any way, visit Young Epilepsy's University Project website.
