You may be eligible to be registered for our notetaking service if you are unable to take lecture notes for yourself or if the course material is not available in other formats (ie online, through UNSW recordings etc). Notetaking may not be relevant for certain teaching formats (eg discussion based sessions).
NOTE: Eligibility for notetaking support is assessed by the documentation provided by your Doctor or Health Professional and in consultation with your Disability Adviser. If you need assistance, contact us and register for support.
Notetaking is unlikely to be provided for seminars or tutorials. Notetakers are UNSW students recruited, where possible, from each of your classes.
The notetaker service is anonymous. You will not be introduced to your notetaker and they will not know who you are or anything about your disability.
Please do not make contact with your notetaker. We have advised our notetakers to respect your privacy and it is important that you respect theirs. Sometimes we are unable to recruit a notetaker from your class. If this is the case, your Disability Adviser will discuss this with you and whether any alternative arrangements can be made.
Notetaking is one of the most complex and time-consuming services that Disability Services provide. Your cooperation in helping our notetaking service to run smoothly is very much appreciated.
Notetaking will only be provided for classes where notes cannot be obtained in another way, such as Lecture Recordings, Moodle etc.
The notetaking service does not replace your attendance at the lecture.
To apply for notetaking fill out the online form Request for a Notetaker.
