Students with disabilities
Trinity Careers Service and the Trinity Disability Service engage with hundreds of students with disabilities in the transition from university to the workplace. We can provide advice in areas such as disclosure of a disability, reasonable accommodation in the workplace, assistive technology, equality legislation, and managing your work role.
We hope that the resources outlined below are useful but please feel free to raise any disability-related issues with us that you want to discuss, either by approaching a Careers Consultant at an event, when you are booking an appointment with your Careers Consultant or within an individual guidance meeting.
Students registered with the Trinity Disability Service can also email their contact within that service, or the careers lead within the Disability Service, Kieran Lewis at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please follow the quick links below for disability-related information on our websites and for a list of supports available.
