You are not the first person with a disability to want to go to uni…

If you have a disability and want to go to uni contact them early.  Just by having a disability you can get university support staff to swing in to help you, while you are still at school.

These experts have done it all before. They know what is possible.

Complete the Understanding Your Study Requirements worksheet then contact the university of your choice.

I went to uni because my girlfriend was going to uni. I had no idea. I struggled through my degree. I struggled to avoid teaching. I struggled to find my way in the world beyond school. After washing cars and working in bars I went into marketing and then became an English teacher. It didn't stop there. I went into TAFE, then into HR, then into designing training programs for industry before going into system design and IT. At one stage I became a world expert on collaboration frameworks!! Now I am an expert in career paths from school in Western Australia. You can tap into my expertise by subscribing to my newsletter for West Australian high schools or by working with me online as we design your perfect next step. Contact me at or M: 0434056412
