Would my disability disqualify me?

Hi folks,

I am currently in my first year at university but I am interested in the Royal Navy afterwards, however I was born hard of hearing.

Am I correct in assuming that my disability would automatically disqualify me from joining the navy as an officer?

Unfortunately I don't have any documentation at present which lists the severity of my hearing loss, but I do wear hearing aids in order to make it easier to function essentially, less guessing and lipreading on my part.

So if unfortunately my disability would disqualify me from serving in the navy, would there be any other way I could use my computing degree within the navy, or would it be a blanket exclusion from all roles?
