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.

"Being a sufferer of mental illness means that I have experienced many things in my life so far, that other people who don't suffer in the same way, will never have the chance to. I believe that these experiences have given me a greater insight into other people and made me a far more compassionate person. Whilst I like to think that I have always been open and accepting, my illness has given me the opportunity to really develop this. Having depression and EUPD has opened the doors for me to meet a range of people, whose paths I would never have crossed otherwise. I have sat around tables and chatted with university graduates with PhDs, single parents, business owners, ex-business owners who are now homeless, fellow youths who have yet to find a path in life and numerous other people. My plus is my acceptance and my openness. Never will I ever judge a person based on a prejudice or preconceived idea of who they might be, because in my experience we are almost always wrong.
Mental illness might have taken a lot from me, but it has, I believe, left me a far better person." - Kate Dickins
