ITS Education Asia makes no distinction in its admissions policy for this course with regard to disabilities. If our VLE can accommodate the candidates’ disability the candidate will be considered with all other applicants. Since the programme is presented in a VLE it is actually ideal for learners that are confined to a particular place.
