Students in IHLs are increasingly recognising the value of early exposure to industry and internships to gain real-world working experience, as well as building their resumes. Students with disabilities tend to face more challenges in this regard than their typical peers, which could put them at a disadvantage when it comes to securing jobs post-graduation.
