Curtin University is seeking to better understand and support students with a disability/medical condition.

It is apparent that some students with a disability/medical condition choose not to disclose their status on their Curtin enrolment. While this is entirely voluntary, choosing not to disclose this reduces Curtin's ability to support students with a disability/medical condition.

This 5-minute survey aims to determine the extent of this under-reporting, so Curtin can understand and address the barriers to disclosure, and ultimately provide the resources for all students to thrive. 

This survey is anonymous, but please consider leaving your email address if prompted. All responses are confidential.

Question Title

* 1. Do you have a disability/medical condition?

Please note the definition of a disability as per Curtin's website:
https://students.curtin.edu.au/personal-support/disability/definition/

Question Title

* 2. If 'Yes', have you indicated this on your Curtin enrolment?

(You can check via Student Oasis --> eStudent --> My Details --> Disability/Medical Details)

Question Title

* 3. If you have a disability/medical condition and have NOT indicated this on your enrolment, please briefly share any concerns or what prevented you from disclosing.

Question Title

* 4. How was your experience with disclosing your disability/medical condition online to Curtin? If you had any problems with your disclosure process, please explain.

Question Title

* 5. Did you know you could update your disability/medical details through E-student at any time?

Question Title

* 6. What could Curtin University do to make you feel more comfortable or make the process easier when disclosing your disability/medical condition?

Question Title

* 7. If you have a disability/medical condition but did not disclose this to the university, it would be great to hear from you! If you would like to help us address these barriers to disclosure by participating in a follow-up survey, then please provide your email address below so we can reach out to you. (Your details will be strictly confidential and will not be shared with Curtin University)
