What we offer
The Disabled Students Allowance (DSA) is a government-funded scheme that provides additional support to disabled students to enable full participation in higher education. The grant is available to pay for the additional costs of studying that cannot be met through reasonable adjustments provided by the university, as advised on the official DSA webpages.
DSA can be used to help pay for specialist equipment and software as well as non-medical helpers such as one-to-one study skills support tutors, specialist mentors, sign language interpreters etc. A general allowance for printing costs and travel costs may also be offered. The DSA is not intended cover living costs, care costs or tuition fees, so it is worth exploring other opportunities for financial support.
You can apply for the DSA from the February of year when you will be starting your course.
Once your DSA application has been approved by your funding body, you can book a needs assessment at Bush House.
Different funding bodies may have specific information or requirements to them. Follow the links below to find information about DSAs by the different funding bodies:
