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 dyslexia is, mostly, invisible. That is because I work incredibly hard in order to compensate for it and therefore make it so. It is through my dyslexia that I have found ways to work more efficiently and optimise what I do. I learnt to touch type at age 8 (when I was diagnosed as dyslexic) so I didn't have to worry so much about spelling mistakes. I always make concise notes because my reading speed is slow and I don't want to have to read hundreds of pages of lecture notes multiple times.
Dyslexia has also led me to be more patient with explaining concepts to others as I understand how hard it can be to struggle with concepts others may perceive as simple. When I graduate, I have a job in consultancy focussed on saving companies money by optimising their use of the infrastructure they already have. I believe the reason I will excel at this is I have had plenty of practice doing this in my day to day life. MyPlus is my strength.” – Zoë Clark

The key lesson that I take away from this journey is that, when you are competing with others, being ‘normal’ or ‘average’ is not necessarily an advantage. Here, success is less about keeping up with other candidates and meeting conventional standards; instead, it is about embracing the fact that remarkable people often have remarkable backgrounds, and can do remarkable things.
