The impact of ADHD on the educational outcomes of university students

Historically, young people with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) have been unlikely to enrol into further education, and of those who did, few graduated at the same time as their non-ADHD peers. University students with ADHD may experience learning difficulties or problems that make it harder for them to learn in the same way as their non-ADHD peers.
