1. BU Opportunity of the Week


Paid Summer Internships available for students with disabilities with Change 100

Change100 is a paid summer internship and professional development scheme designed to support the career development of talented university students with a disability or disabilities.

We know that young people are often anxious about disclosing a disability to an employer, while also worrying about how a disability will affect their work once they are offered a job. By creating career opportunities combined with professional learning support, Change100 aims to remove that barrier and allow disabled people to focus on making the most of their talent and add great value to their employer.
