According to primary data presented in this chapter, despite facing barriers when studying at a tertiary level, students with disability performed at a similar level to students without disability. Students with a disability had a higher level of intrinsic motivation towards their study, which may have assisted them to overcome potential barriers. In terms of quality of life, students with a disability reported lower satisfaction in the domains of physical health and environment, but not on psychological health or social relationships relative to students without a disability.
