This section is all about Disabled Students' Allowances (DSA). If you are a student with UK citizenship and you have a disability or medical condition then you may be eligible for Disabled Students' Allowances.
If you feel that you will need the support of a note-taker, mentor, or other support worker then you will need to apply for DSA funding. You may also require additional equipment in order to study effectively and the DSA can often fund the cost of equipment. In addition there is a General Allowance towards printing, photocopying, and, in some cases, travel costs.
Disabled Students' Allowances are designed to cover the additional costs that a student may incur as a result of a disability or medical condition. The DSA does not provide funds for maintenance, tuition fees or other non-academic costs.
To find out more about the application process and to make an application, please follow the links to the left of this page.
