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 determination to overcome obstacles. The
determination to show other people who suffer from the same condition you can
still live a normal, content life, without assuming that an Inflammatory Bowel
Disease will hold you back. I have suffered from Ulcerative Colitis (UC) for
the last 11 years. Amongst many other symptoms, I get extremely tired very
quickly and have developed anxiety because of my illness. Despite this, I still
get up every morning, I still go to work every day, I still see my friends and
socialise, and do the things a normal person in their mid-20’s does. Having
come from a very working class background, I have always wanted to achieve and
succeed. I was the first in my family to attend university and obtain a degree,
the first to apply and work on a graduate scheme. Each occasion has been
inundated by the symptoms of UC and sometimes I have struggled to meet
deadlines, concentrate fully in lectures and dedicate time out of hours to my
work and study, but I persevered on without much complaint. Without the
determination and drive to succeed, I may have taken a completely different
path. My illness doesn’t, and won’t
ever, define me, because I am more than just a ‘sufferer’. I am a warrior." - Gabriella Ragno
