Abstract [en]

In Sweden, there is an ambition that higher education should be accessible for all people who have the ability to study. Universities should work towards widening participation and from the 1st of January 2015 lack of accessibility can be a form of discrimination (Prop.2001/02:15, s.18 f.; 1kap. 5 § stycke 4 HL; DO, 2015). The question is if the ambition of widening participation and an education free from discrimination correspond with how the students with disabilities experience their study situation? 

The result of this study shows that the students use different types of supports in their study situation and that the satisfaction with them varies. The support that the students value the most is personal support which is also the support that the students wants more of. 

One quarter of the respondents, 25 % (37/148), answered that they had experienced some form of discrimination. When it comes to lack of accessibility 45 % (67/148) of the respondents had experienced this, which was connected to lack of support, lack of information, lack of accessibility in the physical environment or in the study situation, lack of understanding and time issues.
