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.

"My plus is that I’m organised; having a disability means that I need to be organised in order to go about my day-to-day life. A train journey to work for most people is relatively stress free aside from the occasional strike or the train running late. Catching the train with a disability is a slightly trickier process; I have to book assistance for the train journey to ensure that the ramps are provided for my wheelchair to exit the train as well as reserve a seat. I used to view these extra tasks I had to do negatively and as a waste of my time, however it recently occurred to me that the organisational skills I have developed are actually very valuable in the world of work and enhance the academic skills I developed during my time at university. For companies to achieve their goals within a given time frame, they require employees with strong organisational skills; and there are lots of different opportunities to apply your organisational skills at work, from developing marketing strategies to planning the companies next steps. Being organised makes me efficient at my job and my working life easier." - Dean Chaffer
