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.

In a recent article for The Guardian, Katharine Quarmby explores the scale and reasons behind the "disability employment gap".
Reflecting on the statistics, with a global employment gap average of 20%, Katharine rightly comments that "being denied the opportunity to work when you want to and are able to is frustrating for disabled people" in a world where 15% of the population live with a disability.
Yet while the article paints a predominately negative picture, there are reasons for optimism as research affirms that peer support networks and disabled role models are the key to boosting employment levels among disabled people.
This is something we are proud to be part of at Great With Disability, through providing disabled students and graduates with access to inclusive employers, helpful resources, and a wealth of success stories and interviews from disabled individuals succeeding in the workplace.
