Careers support for Students with Disabilities

Services and contact information

The Careers Support Service is a specialist service to help students with disabilities with all aspects of career planning. We provide advice, information and support from the time you start in UL, through your Cooperative Education placement, and as you prepare for the next stage in your career, which includes employment or postgraduate study. One of the specialist services we provide is the Inclusion website which is tailored for students and graduates with disabilities.

As a student dealing with an illness or disability are there issues that concern you when preparing for and making career choices?

Do you need any special support when accessing the range of services available to you through the Careers Service?

Do issues like attending interviews, accessing information and disclosing health matters to an employer present special concerns?

A special Careers Advice and Support Service is available to students who are registered with the Disability Service. In addition to general service provision, the Careers Service supports special needs across all aspects of career planning and career strategy development. The service aims to support students with career planning from the point of admission to U.L. Students are welcomed and encouraged to use the facilities of this service.
