Good afternoon people. As we are mostly on a go-slow over the Christmas break, I thought I would just share the link for the UCAS dates as the January deadline is only a few weeks away. If you have any questions before submitting your application, I will try my best to answer them.

    I thought I would also share the question myself and colleagues doing the same sort of work get on a regular basis - should I disclose my disability/mental health etc. on my UCAS application? 95% of the time I would recommend yes. it is easier to access support which is already in place than try to access support if you have a bit of a crisis. Reasonable adjustments (or accommodations for our Irish and American members) are there to give you a level playing field alongside your non-disabled peers, it is not an advantage.
