Are you a disabled student who's about to graduate? We've rounded up some important guidance and information to help you navigate life beyond King's.

If you’re moving on to further studies in the UK, don’t forget to apply or reapply for the Disabled Students Allowance (DSA).

Will I have access to support from the Disability Support & Inclusion team after I graduate?

If you currently receive support through the Disability Support Service, we advise that you discuss how you will be supported after graduation and work with the team to ensure you have a plan.

Where can I go for careers support once I leave?

You can access advice and information from King’s Careers & Employability for up to two years after graduating. Why not contact the team and book an appointment?
