Abstract

Little is known about the cumulative impact of disability, low socioeconomic status and regionality on students in Australia and the barriers, levers and influences that impact their higher education decisions making. The overarching objectives of the program of research were
to determine the factors that influence the decisions of people from low SES background with a disability from regional and remote areas to attend university and to provide strategies that might be effective in reducing barriers to higher education among young people with a
disability.

Keywordsdisability, low socioeconomic status, regionality, resilience, enablers, barriers
