Assistive Technology (AT) is specialised equipment and technology that students with additional learning requirements use in class and in the home environment, to increase or improve their ability to engage and learn.

What equipment or software is available?

We have a range of software and equipment you can engage with while you study at Unitec. For more information on this please view our Software Available and Equipment Available pages.

To be eligible to apply or trial assistive technology a student must: 
  • Be enrolled in a current or prospective programme at Unitec
  • Have a specific learning or health related difficulty that could create a barrier to their studies at Unitec
  • Be registered with the Access4Success Disability service. If you are not currently registered, please complete this form and our Access Advisor will make a time with you to walk you through this.
