Abstract:
This thesis is focused upon and examines the experiences of students with dyslexia in higher education. At the time of the research project started not much was known about the experiences of higher education students with dyslexia. An insight into their lives and experiences with a further overview of their past is evaluated. The participants of this study were undergraduate and postgraduate students studying for a degree in Higher Education and were assessed as dyslexic. The sample consisted of students that were studying in three universities in the city that the research took place. In order for the data to be collected interviews were used, as it would be very difficult to describe experiences and feelings with numbers. The words of the participants were used to support the categories and findings of the study. The students of these particular universities were overall satisfied with the provision and support they were receiving from their institutions although further investigation needs to be done on the attitudes and perceptions of the lecturers with regards to dyslexia.
