My Resources

Some careers services may have dedicated advisers for disabled students. In many services, all careers advisers will work with disabled students and will have specific resources for disabled students. In addition to providing general careers advice, advisers can also advise you on the specific questions you have in relation to your disability such as the pros and cons of disclosing your disability to an employer, identifying employers and sources of support, advice and information. They will also be able to tell you about resources such as relevant workshops, mentoring programmes, careers events, internship opportunities, all of which could help you succeed. University careers service websites often have specific advice and information for disabled students. Contact your university careers service to find out more. The following is a list of Universities that have a dedicated careers adviser for disabled students. Please note that this list is not exclusive.
