I thought some here might find this learning opportunity of interest.
The Master's is offered through OCAD University in Toronto and has
definitely attracted students from outside Canada. Note the early
April deadline.

Friends and colleagues,
As you know we have a fairly pioneering graduate program in inclusive
design at OCAD U
http://www.ocadu.ca/academics/graduate-studies/inclusive-design.htm .
The program recruits as diverse a cohort of students as possible and
the students co-design the learning experience, thereby experiencing
inclusive design while learning about inclusive design.

I have just heard that we have been granted several additional spaces
to fill this year. We are particularly interested in finding
individuals who use alternative access systems or who have faced
discrimination due to ethnic, cultural, age, gender or other human
difference. However, all students interested in this quickly emerging
field are welcome to apply. The kicker is that the submission deadline
is early April.

If you know of anyone that might be interested please ask them to
contact us at: aodowd at ocadu.ca<mailto:aodowd at ocadu.ca> . There is the
opportunity to grant non-standard admission to worthy candidates who
may not have the usual academic qualifications but have life
experiences that would inform the studies. This would include
individuals who may not have considered graduate education because
they don't have the standard undergraduate academic background.
