The Equality Challenge Unit (ECU), is asking disabled students about their experiences of career support at university. The findings will be used to help careers services work with employers to remove barriers to employment and support disabled students in developing employability skills and identifying career paths. The survey is part of a project supported by the Department for Work and Pensions and the Department of Business, Innovation and Skills.

ECU works to further and support equality and diversity for staff and students in higher education across all four nations of the UK, and in colleges in Scotland. ECU works closely with colleges and universities to seek to ensure that staff and students are not unfairly excluded, marginalised or disadvantaged because of age, disability, gender identity, marital or civil partnership status, pregnancy or maternity status, race, religion or belief, sex, sexual orientation, or through any combination of these characteristics or other unfair treatment.

The survey takes around 15 minutes to complete and focuses on experiences of  university career service, what  is currently being doing well and ideas to improve support.
