Dom Hyams Warwick University Management (Business) Studies

2020-10-22T13:17:38+01:00

A brave new world of independence. Heading to University is a daunting experience for most students, but as someone that required essentially a great deal of assistance going about my daily life - heading to University was going to be completely life-changing, one that would see me not only living away from home for the first time but also away from those family and friends that acted as my safety blanket - helping me have an independent life. I was off to Warwick University to embark on a degree in Management (business) Studies - and I was all too aware [...]

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 [...]

Jo takes us through her journey as a disabled student attending university   I graduated from the University of Glasgow in 2009 (and I still cannot believe how fast time has passed) complete with hearing aids and a wheelchair. Thanks to a University with a formidable and very efficient Disability Services team, I managed 5 years in Glasgow (and Aix en Provence) unscathed. "thanks to generations of disabled students and access advisers making a noise, access for wheelchairs is generally not a problem" The Scottish university system means that you can [...]

Carrie writes about her experience as a disabled student going to a university My name is Carrie Aimes and I graduated in 2011 with a BA (Hons) Art & Design and English Literature. During my studies, I chose to commute from home, rather than accessing university accommodation, as this was easier for me. Though ideally, I would have preferred to study elsewhere, I attended my local university, situated only an hour away. This was a practical decision based on my personal care needs. “I utilised my note-taking assistants in other ways - mainly as baggage carriers - [...]

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. [...]

Hello, I have Muscular Dystrophy. I graduated from Roehampton University with a 2:1 degree in Film and Photography in 2016. “At the very start of university, I was given an interview with the disability team to work out what equipment I might need” Disability wise the campus was really accessible for me. There was even a disability society for students with disabilities to come together and get to know each other. That was a lot of fun! At the very start of university, I was given an interview with the disability [...]
