With the move towards widening participation in university level education and the need to enhance student support for all students, there is a need for higher education institutions, governmental organisations and non-governmental organisations to develop new and enhance existing approaches.

To enable this, all relevant stakeholders need to increase their understanding and develop new approaches to facilitate widening participation and student support. Such actions require suitable projects to be undertaken in targeted areas and an understanding of sources of suitable information. This section of the Student and Staff Support Hub is aimed to provide information on different Non-European Union (international) supported projects that are in the area of education and supporting students with disabilities.
