Accessibility

Taking part in PASS will be completely free and accessible for all attendees.

Open, flexible access to the event is very important to PARTNERS. We aim to ensure in all stages of the event planning and delivery that accessibility is given top priority and all PARTNERS students are able to access all aspects of the Programme.

Travel and accommodation requirements

If it becomes clear once the format is confirmed that there is an on-campus element to PASS 2022, all compulsory activities associated with PASS will be paid for by the University.

This includes travel, meals and accommodation (where necessary).

Software access

PASS will include delivery via Canvas, the University's virtual learning environment. PARTNERS students will be able to access this platform via a web browser and a bespoke iOS/Android app.

If there are any other pieces of software required, they will be either freely available online or accessible for free using the University's software licenses.

Attendees at PASS 2022 will be given access to the following, free of charge:

  • Canvas - Newcastle University's Virtual Learning Platform
  • Microsoft Office 365 (including Word, Excel and Powerpoint)
  • your own Newcastle University email address
  • Newcastle University library services

Some examples of applications that were utilised during PASS 2021 include:

  • Miro - an online collaborative whiteboard platform
  • Padlet - a flexible note-taking platform
  • Mentimeter - an interactive presentation platform

To ensure that PASS 2022 is as accessible as possible, any platform used will be available via a variety of devices. This includes laptops, tablets and smartphones.
