1 MapAbility| International ExchangeAbility Coordinators Team | An Project

2 Data Analysis

3 Our goal is to map all the Higher Education Institutions of the European Higher Education Area (around HEIs) Our first target were the HEIs with a local ESN section (452 local sections in 37 countries) Second target are the IROs and Disability Offices from all the Universities in Europe (without ESN section) MapAbility| International ExchangeAbility Coordinators Team |

5 Data Analysis From 02/03/2014 to 22/05/2014 we have reached 169 submissions of Services and 549 submissions of University buildings! MapAbility| International ExchangeAbility Coordinators Team |

22 University Services Some of the best practices for students with disabilities: Additional Scholarship/Reduction of the tuition fee Learning support (e.g. Sign language interpreters) Counseling, psychological support Exam support (e.g. individual exam day, material, exam secretaries and private examination) Domestic help Contracted Personal Assistants Parking for people with disabilities MapAbility| International ExchangeAbility Coordinators Team |

24 University Services Socialising: Leisure and sports activities organised by the University (e.g. Disability Week) Activities by Student Associations and Clubs Activities and cooperation with other HEIs and organisations Accessible social places (cafeterias, common spaces) MapAbility| International ExchangeAbility Coordinators Team |

25 Residence Halls MapAbility| International ExchangeAbility Coordinators Team |

26 Residence Halls MapAbility| International ExchangeAbility Coordinators Team |

27 Residence Halls Only 50 of them provide services for students with disabilities (8 of them with a fee) Some good practices: Accessible buildings Guidance, support Volunteer students or on-call trained assistants Cooperation with organisations for people with disabilities MapAbility| International ExchangeAbility Coordinators Team |

28 Buildings MapAbility| International ExchangeAbility Coordinators Team |

29 Buildings The “Building” part of the questionnaire can be submitted more than once. Some good examples of ESN sections mapping University Buildings are: ESN Zagreb (Croatia): 36 ESN Tbilisi ISU (Georgia): 30 ESN BelUPgrade (Serbia): 23 ESN InsiDijon (France): 21 ESN Osijek (Croatia): 21 ESN Málaga (Spain): 20 MapAbility| International ExchangeAbility Coordinators Team |

35 Conclusion The general conclusion is that the European Higher Education Area is not fully accessible They focus mostly on physical disability and not on sensory (visual/hearing impairment) or cognitive disabilities (i.e. autism) The questionnaire is still out ESN sections and HEIs are highly encouraged to continue the mapping process There is a lot of work still to be done!
