PhD Research tackles teaching practice school placements & financial aid arrangements for students with disabilities

Dr Roshanthni Subrayen graduated at the University of KwaZulu-Natal with a PhD in education for her research on the gendered experiences of both students with visual and physical disabilities in respect of their teaching practice school placements and their student financial aid arrangements.

Subrayen, a disability coordinator at the University, chose to pursue her study on the topic based on the challenges experienced by students with disabilities whilst engaging in their teaching practice school placements. ‘Disability is a human rights and social justice issue. I needed to know and understand how higher education was delivering on the promise of equity, access and participation in higher education for students with disabilities.’
