Main Article Content
Education has the potential to be a forceful agent of social transformation. It has the potential to serve as a tool for improving a person's socioeconomic standing and offering everyone, including people with disabilities, a respectable place in society. The pursuit of knowledge, its generation, preservation, and transmission can be significantly advanced through participation in higher education. As was mentioned earlier, higher education is directly connected to the development of skills, the building of nations, the integration of nations, employment opportunities, and research. It has the potential to increase both the potential for economic development and the potential for social development. Therefore, obtaining a higher education can play an important part in improving the socioeconomic and political status of Students with Disabilities; however, there were some challenges that Students with Disabilities (SWDs) encountered when attempting to obtain a higher education. As a result, the purpose of this study was to investigate the challenges that are experienced by students with disabilities and to also investigate the obstacles that are experienced by students with disabilities. Students with visual impairments, students with hearing impairments, and students with orthopaedic handicaps who were enrolled at the graduation level in higher education institutions were selected as a sample for the study for the purpose of gathering information for the purpose. Previous reviews were utilised as a resource in the process of both comprehending the issues and developing solutions. Following the consultation with the subject matter experts, the use of tools that were self-constructed was implemented. In addition, the issues were investigated from the perspectives of age, gender, disability, and access to academic or professional programmes offered by a variety of educational establishments at the higher education level.
