Ross Hovey Business Studies Anglia Ruskin University

2020-10-05T18:38:33+01:00

My name is Ross Hovey and I graduated in 2001 with a BA (Hons) in Business Studies at Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge, around 20 miles from home. A combination of being very ill during sixth form and my own preference for personal care provided by family meant studying locally was the easiest option. I attend a college for 2 years which then allowed me to upgrade my HND to a degree – so in reality I only went to University for 18months. “I realised that the benefit of studying locally and having no debt [...]

Johnathan writes about his experience as a disabled student going to the University of East Anglia Learning new things and experiencing things that I had not beforehand. Such as travelling to South Africa. For a long time, I wanted to focus on a career path that I was passionate about, for myself that was animals and conservation. It took me four years to complete my degree due to poor health. But in those four years, I learned so much, I was offered so many experiences that I would never have been able to do if it wasn’t for my course. [...]

Olu Fadipe’s University Experience

2020-09-30T18:27:07+01:00

Olu University Experience My name is Olu Fadipe, and I want to share my university experience. I started Solent University in September 2015 and I graduated in July 2019 with a 2:1. I would argue your time at university is when you grow the most as a person, I often look back at how I was when I first started and the person I have now become. One of the things about university is that most students (disabled and non-disabled) are all thrown in the deep end, it is like chucking [...]

2020-10-05T18:10:23+01:00

My name is Chloe Tear, I graduated from Leeds Trinity University in 2019 with a First Class Honours degree in Psychology and Child Development. I have mild cerebral palsy and during my time at university I lost a large proportion of my sight. Alongside my studies I continued being a freelance writer and public speaker. I chose a small campus university and lived on-site during my first and third year. Despite several nights out, drinking games and late nights, I’m not going to pretend I was your average student. My course was enjoyable, but due to my disabilities it did take [...]

Joel Pitman University’s Experience Film Production

2020-09-30T18:56:18+01:00

University Experience I attended the University of Portsmouth from 2015-2018, studying Film Production, and then went on to do an MA in Film and Television from 2018-19. Ever since I was young I knew I wanted to go to university. Even as a child, I became aware that my disability set me apart from society, for all the wrong reasons. And this drove me to prove to society, and by extension, to myself, that I could achieve what able-bodied people could. I viewed university as my platform to achieving this. University Experience “What made me [...]
