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.

The Motability Scholarship Programme provided me with an ideal opportunity to gain experience in the workplace during my years at university; in total I spent two summer breaks with the company and have subsequently joined the organisation as a full time employee.
As an IT student I was keen to join Business Systems and see how the modules I had been studying could be put into practice in the real world. I was placed in London with the Business Analyst team within Business Systems. From the outset I was made very welcome and was encouraged to meet with the individual team members to understand their roles. Before long I was contributing at team meetings and participating in larger meetings around the business. Coming from the classroom environment I found this sense of responsibility incredibly rewarding.
Placements: Business Systems
Although the majority of my time was spent within Business Systems, in each placement I was allocated time to work amongst the other areas of the business to become familiar with the role they play. This exposure to the business was a real eye opener as it outlined the importance of working together and emphasized the mammoth task of running and maintaining such an incredible scheme.
