Advice on support at University

University / Higher Education (DSA)

University / Higher Education support is mainly and usually funded by Student Finance England / Student Finance NI in the form of the Disabled Students Allowance (DSA). It is best applied for when you have been accepted on your course. Use the DSA QAG website https://www.dsa-qag.org.uk/ to locate a Needs Assessment Centre AND contact the Disability Team from your University as soon as possible to avoid any unnecessary delays in funding.
