We provide accessible learning resources in the form of Word, PDF or html depending on the needs of your students. Students should contact a Student Adviser to discuss their situation and activate UQ and Library Support services.

Request accessible required readings

Submit your requests early, if possible. We try to process requests within 10 working days.

An alternative is the self-service tool that allows you to upload your file for conversion into an alternative, accessible format:
