Applying with a disability
You do not need to be registered with the Disability Service to request adjustments in a recruitment process.
However if you already receive adjustments at university it could be helpful to consider how these might be helpful to you in a recruitment process.
Helpful to Know
Disability and long term health conditions include, but are not limited to: visual and hearing impairments, mobility impairments, Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), diabetes, epilepsy, dyslexia, dyspraxia, mental health conditions, speech impairments and major illnesses such as cancer and MS
Through our partnership with EmployAbility students and graduates have access to individualised advice and support about adjustments for recruitment and the workplace, information about your rights, and support with your application. The EmployAbility team will also advocate for you with an employer to ensure you receive the adjustments you need, taking any stress and anxiety out of the process.
