We are searching for individuals who choose to use their lived experience of disabling barriers to make a difference. To create change.
You might have ambition to be a thought or a subject leader. To become prominent in your field or in your community. To participate in public life or in any activity where representation of disabled persons is disproportionately low. Whatever your specific plans, it’s likely that you, or others around you, see your current or future self as a role model, pioneer or leader. And that your future plans will help drive societal change and inclusion for all.
If you feel like that describes you and your plans, we are excited to meet you.
Can I apply for an undegraduate course/PhD/integrated master's?
You can’t apply for an undergraduate course, a PG Cert, PG Dip, PGCE or a PhD level course, or any other master’s level studies which do not result in a full master’s degree.
Integrated undergraduate courses where the master’s is the final year are not eligible, however you can apply for the first master’s year of an integrated postgraduate course.
