University is an education in the broadest sense. Our University section will enable you to make the most of your time at University and take advantage of all of the opportunities available to you.
Making the most of your time at University
In this section you can find all the advice and guidance you need as you apply for jobs and prepare for interviews.
In the Recruitment section there is a wealth of information about completing applications forms, online tests, and the various stages in the recruitment. Whilst the Disability section provides advice on how to manage your disability during the recruitment process including information on how to inform an employer of what you require and referring to your disability during an interview.
Managing Your Disability
The Organisations section is where you can find out about various organisations, the opportunities they offer and their individual approach to disability.
Profiles / Stories
It’s always great to hear from those who have been successful.
This section profiles many individuals, working across different industries, at various stages of their careers. Their interviews demonstrate that is possible to have a successful career regardless of whether or not you have a disability. They also illustrate the adjustments that can be made in the workplace.

Our mission is to ensure that having a disability or long-term health condition doesn't prevent anyone from having the career that they want to have. Not only do we want disabled individuals to realise their career ambitions, we also want employers to benefit from the unique talents and strengths that disabled individuals can, and do, bring to an organisation.
"I don't believe I am any more special than anyone else. But I do believe my disability has given me something extra."
Helen Cooke, Founder and Director of MyPlus Student's Club.
I heard the same questions from students, should I be open about my disability? What should I tell an employer? What support will they provide? Is there anyone else like me in the organisation? Will employers really support me once I have joined?
Disabilities include, but are not limited to, conditions such as visual and hearing impairments, mobility impairments, Asperger's Syndrome, diabetes, epilepsy, dyslexia, dyspraxia, mental health conditions, speech impairments and major illnesses such as cancer and MS.
