Can I keep the equipment which the Disabled Students' Allowance (DSA) funded when my course has finished?

This depends on your funding body, most students are able to keep their equipment. In some cases, equipment is loaned, in which case you will be expected to return it. If you do not start your course, or leave it very soon after starting it, you may be asked to return your equipment. If in any doubt, contact your funding body.

You can also chat with our staff directly every Wednesday from 2 pm - 4 pm and periodically throughout the working week.

Alternatively, chat with our current students who will be able to share this information with you and any other course-related queries.

Or book onto one of our Open Days or Course Advice Days to find out more and speak with the team.
