There is a practical focus to the programme which allows students to develop projects aimed to enhance the lives of people on the autism spectrum; recognising and challenging attitudes and barriers to change. Guest lecturers often with “lived experience” of autism support the delivery of the programme content. There is ongoing support throughout your studies, and you are encouraged to contact your University Personal Tutor at any point for support and guidance.
