Support for New and Current Students
How do I apply for Disabled Students' Allowance (DSA)?
Your funding body will be able to provide you with an application form for Disabled Students' Allowance (DSA), and you can usually download these from the Student Finance website here. You will be expected to provide your funding body with evidence of your disability, in the form of either a medical note or an Educational Psychologist's report. On the basis of this evidence, the funding body will inform you whether they will fund a full assessment of your study needs.
Alternatively, chat with our current students who will be able to share this information with you and any other course-related queries.
If you have more than one condition that you feel will impact your ability to study e.g. dyslexia and mobility difficulties then you will need to provide evidence for both, for instance an Educational Psychologist report and medical letter from your doctor.
As many students find this a daunting experience, a Disability Advisor can help you with this.
Please contact the Disability Team for more information on 01204 903 478 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org, more information can also be found here.
