You may have extra considerations when planning your career.

Careers and Employability support for disabled students

 

In addition to our general careers services, we also provide specialist information and support throughout your studies and after you graduate.

We are committed to equal opportunities for all students.

See our guide to Organisations who provide job-hunting support to disabled students and graduates.

MyPlus Students' Club is an online resource dedicated to supporting disabled students and students with long-term health conditions as they pursue their chosen career.

If you are a disabled student or graduate looking for support in finding a job, contact Support to Work on 0300 222 5742 or email supporttowork@scope.org.uk. For further information visit the Support to Work website.

We also offer appointments with Careers staff who can advise on:

A useful website to look for vacancies and internships is EmployAbility, a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to assisting students and graduates with all disabilities, including dyslexia or long term health conditions, into employment.

Also see the website for the AGCAS Disability Task Group who provide a dedicated blog for both disabled students and graduates. The blog consists of tips, interviews and guest posts in the areas of disability.

We are committed to ensuring that all students have full access to all our services and facilities.

Please let us know in advance if we can put anything in place to help meet your needs.

See the Disability Confident website for details of employers who have signed up to this scheme.
