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 autoimmune condition is, for the most part, invisible. This is both a blessing and a curse as the scarring on my left eye means my sight is often compromised and I often have double vision but very few people know unless I tell them. Being in and out of hospital for the past four years of my life has obviously definitely presented its challenges and made my hopes of going to university seem at times unmanageable. However, I have never let this get in my way.
It has made me persevere in many situations and forced me to think around situations which initially seem impossible. It is something that I have to overcome every day and it has made me appreciate that everyone has their own individual struggles that often aren’t initially obvious and how people can find innovation and positivity despite immense difficulty. My condition is a part of me and I appreciate that it has in part made me who I am. But I refuse to let it define me and I am proud of what I have accomplished despite it. MyPlus is my strength." - Olive Leonard

Carlota & Dyslexia
"I didn’t know I had dyslexia until very recently. During my first year at university, no matter how hard I tried, I found it difficult to work as quickly or as clearly as my course mates. It was hard to find out that I was dyslexic so late, as it meant that I had gone through most of education with no support for my learning.
