There have been many cases where students with serious and mild visual impairments have been marginalized due to the lack of braille or audio support resources on admission information. Especially this year, where the breakout of COVID-19 has caused all lectures to be held online, it has become harder for students with such disabilities to receive proper admission information.
With this issue considered, Hanyang University has published the Talking Braille Admission Book for institutions such as schools and welfare centers for students with disabilities. The admission book is divided into two parts. One is the braille booklet that holds information such as Hanyang University's admission types, majors, and guide on the support services for disabled students. The other part is a USB with an audio file of the booklet.
Hanyang University also conducts visiting 1 on 1 admissions consultation for students who are physically challenged by an admissions officer who has received education for the blind and students with disabilities. The visitations started on the 21st with the Seoul National School for the Blind,and individual consultations will be held both online and offline with the Hanbit School and the Areum School.
The Head of the Office of Admissions, Lee Jea-jin mentioned that "Hanyang University does not limit the admission registration of students with disabilities from a certain major or admission type. This is to ensure that students with disabilities have a fair chance." There is also a special admission type for those in need of special education." He also added that "Hanyang University will work harder to create "The kinder admission" by maintaining communication with visually disabled students that have been marginalized and helping them receive admission information."
