Hello, I am recruiting for participants to be involved in a research study regarding the experiences of students with hearing impairments at university and university practice towards inclusion. I am conducting this study as the basis for the degree of BA Education at The University of East Anglia. This will take place under the supervision of Dr Rebecca Westrup at the University of East Anglia. I am seeking current students OR graduates with hearing impairments to participate in one semi-structured interview with myself, prior to the 8th March 2019. The interview is expected to take between 20-40 minutes and will be conducted at a suitable time and location, or via telephone/video-call. Questions will be reflecting on your experience at university as a student with a hearing impairment. Should you be interested in participating and fit the criteria, please contact me at [email protected] If you know of anyone who may be interested in participating, please forward them my contact details so that I can provide further information. Furthermore, an interpreter will be available, if requested in advance. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions that you may have.

Our vision is to see Deaf people valued by themselves and their society, being confident, well educated, independent, able to communicate and with good and appropriate employment and housing. The principal way we achieve this is through running a day and residential school and college for students from throughout the UK. We also support Deaf students in mainstream schools and colleges through our outreach service, and meet the wider needs of the Deaf community through a range of Deaf services and projects. We are a charity, and have been based in Exeter for nearly 190 years. Our new Deaf Academy will enable us to build on our proud history, and we are very excited about what the future holds for us.
