Inclusive Practice Panel

The Inclusive Practice Panel (IPP) is responsible for the University of London Worldwide (UoLW) policies and procedures relating to inclusive practice and accessibility.

These policies aim to ensure that all students registered through the University of London Worldwide will be assessed solely on their academic merit, and that the learning resources provided to students are accessible to all.

This includes making reasonable adjustments for students with specific access requirements due to a disability or learning difficulty, a legally imposed travel restriction, students currently in prison, and students who require special examination arrangements.

The IPP receives reports on special examination arrangement requests which are considered by the Inclusive Practice Arrangements Panel. In addition, the IPP aims to raise awareness of inclusive practice and the support available for disabled students across the University of London and third party institutions.

The Terms of Reference detail the following:

  • IPP’s advisory function when making recommendations for consideration and endorsement by the University of London Worldwide Academic Committee.
  • IPP’s responsibilities concerning the monitoring of and assuring alignment with relevant regulatory frameworks.

Reporting

The UoLW IPP reports to the University of London Worldwide Academic Committee.
