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.

This week the BBC reported on the results of a YouGov survey stating that over a third of female students suffer with mental health conditions.
The survey of 1,061 students found that 27% of students (male and female) reported mental health problems.
77% of these students said they had depression and 74% said they suffered with anxiety.
Alongside presenting challenges for the individuals themselves, universities are faced with their own battle to find the resources and best methods for supporting these students while they study.
Research has also shown that 1 in 4 of us will experience a mental health condition in any given year, and progressive employers, like Barclays, EY and Accenture, are working hard to ensure mental health issues do not present unnecessary barriers to enjoying a fulfilling career.
You can find a host of articles on mental health topics right here on the Great with Disability website so please do take a look around.
If you are a student or graduate wishing to seek help, please consider contacting your GP, the Samaritans, Mind, Sane or Calm.
