College to University

University is scary enough without added challenges but for many of us, there will be obstacles we have to face because of our disabilities. This can be daunting and stressful, especially if this is the first time you have had to make a big, life-changing decision.

So here’s what I suggest. If you are still in your first year at College or Sixth Form, start looking at universities now. Log onto the UCAS website (or your country equivalent), browse the universities that do your course and narrow it down to around 5-7 choices. By choices, I mean different universities, not the courses.
