All courses welcome applications from people with disabilities. If you are invited for a short-listing test or an interview day we suggest contacting the relevant course centre staff team (see the Courses section for their contact details) or the relevant University Disability Service to discuss any support needs you may have, so that adjustments can be made in good time. (Please see the After You Apply section if you need more information about short-listing tests or interviews.)
If you have any issues using our website please contact us to discuss how you can make an application eg for our support in using the website, for an application in another format, etc (see the Contact Us page for our details).
The Disability Confident scheme (previously known as "two ticks" or "double-tick") is a voluntary scheme that organisations can choose to sign up to. It aims to help organisations make the most of the talents disabled people have to offer. If you need more information about the Disability Confident scheme please see the gov.uk website.
If you have a disability as defined by the Equality Act and you want to be considered under the scheme please indicate this in the Basics section of your application. Please note that not all course centres are involved in the scheme so this will only take effect if the courses you have applied to are participating. Please see the Courses section to check which course centres are involved. If you need more information about the Equality Act and the definition of disability, please see the Equality and Human Rights Commission website.
If you wish to give further details about your disability you can do this in the final question in the Personal Statements section of your application, but this is not a requirement. It is your decision whether or not to disclose a disability at any stage in the application process.
Any information you provide about a disability in the equal opportunities section of your application may not be available to the course centres, depending on the consent you have given and on how each course centre uses (or does not use) the data. Therefore, if you wish to be considered under the Disability Confident scheme please indicate this in the Basics section of your application (as described above). Please see the Equal Opportunities page if you need more information on how that section of the application may be used.
A Word version of our application documents is provided below for applicants who, due to a disability or limited internet access, may have issues using our website. Please contact us if you need advice on using this Word file, or to discuss how we can support you in making an application (see the Contact Us page for our details).
