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 year, following the recent adoption of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals and the role of these goals in building a more inclusive and equitable world for persons with disabilities, we will be celebrating International Day on December 3rd and reflecting on the theme of 'Achieving 17 Goals for the Future We Want'.
If you are a member of MyPlus Students' Club, you may know that we are working to achieve goals of our own, to ensure that having a disability or long-term health condition doesn't prevent anyone from having the career they want to have. Not only do we want students like yourself to realise your ambitions, our team also work to help the UK's top employers benefit from the unique talents and strengths that individuals with disabilities can, and do, bring to an organisation.
