Thank you for your interest in our research project, our surveys are ready and we are aiming for a comprehensive insight into a range of experiences from deaf students, academics and HE senior managers, and access and inclusion staff such as notetakers, interpreters, disability advisors, language support staff, to help us to make best practice recommendations.

We are planning to launch a survey in November 2021, which will be designed following the completion of pilot interviews. The aim of the survey is to collect responses from the following groups:

  • 500 deaf students with various types of deafness/hearing loss, socio-cultural and geographic backgrounds;
  • 100 academics;
  • 40 support staff/BSL interpreters/notetakers

The survey will ask participants questions on a number of topics, including: their background, the impact of COVID-19 on their experiences as a deaf student, online
teaching, accessibility and support and university guidelines on deaf students.
Results will be included in the research project report and will influence the design of guidance documents, recommendations, best practices, tips and workshops.
