"I work with students, looking at their health circumstances – whether it’s a long-term disability, chronic illness or temporary condition – and how it impacts upon their capacity to undertake their studies. Then, I look at reasonable adjustments that can be made to ensure equal participation in all aspects of their study.

Helping people engage with our services – to see the transformation from when they’re sitting really hesitantly to becoming optimistic and hopeful in what they can achieve – is probably the biggest buzz.

One of our challenges is to progress people’s understanding of being open-minded about students who face obstacles relating to their disability. It’s important to remember that it’s not just the responsibility of disability services to support students; it’s the whole University." Curtin has recently launched a new Disability Access and Inclusion Plan as part of our commitment to making education, employment and services accessible to people whose innovation and excellence might otherwise be denied or lost to the community.

This year's Open Day is a special one as we are celebrating 50 years of Innovation. Here's a throwback to the first WAIT Open Day in 1977 where abseiling down the library was part of the festivities. #curtinopenday #curtin50years #perth #perthlife #curtinlife #curtin #abseiling

"I changed my degree from biology to primary education. I recently went and volunteered for a day at my primary school. I really enjoyed it, and I realised that’s what I want to do. I’m enjoying the practical side of learning. When we do performing arts, for example, we get to come up with fun stuff to do with the children, like acting and dancing." #education #acting #dancing #humansofcurtin #university #curtin #student #curtinlife #unilife

"In high school, we talked to teachers about what we wanted to do as a job and, due to being Aboriginal, I was put in a ‘special group’. When I said I wanted to be a doctor, I was told I would never make it. I have now done something not many people thought I could do, and I’ve achieved something I really wanted and worked really hard for…I see myself as a doctor and having either a specialty in emergency medicine or as an orthopaedic surgeon."

"I’m studying health science and hoping to get into oral health next year. I’ve had a passion for this area of health ever since I was very young. I was born in Congo, and when I finish studying, I want to go back there and open an oral health clinic. You don’t often hear about people helping with a community’s oral health - it’s more about medicine. I think teeth are very important as well!

I’ve been in Australia for five years, so I was 14 when we left. My family came as refugees." #humansofcurtin #healthscience #oralhealth #congo #africa #perth

Congrats to Curtin researcher Ross Edwards and the rest of the #iceriver2017 crew for reaching the end of their scientific adventure! The expedition which involved collecting snow samples across the Greenland ice cap was an absolute success.

"Studying medicine has been a long time dream of mine. After the grind of the past few years [of high school], it was unbelievably gratifying to have all the hours and effort I put in come to fruition in the form of my first preference university offer – I couldn’t be more excited.” #humansofcurtin #medicine #perth #uni #curtinlife #unilife #curtin
