Disabled Students' Allowance

If you have a disability or long-standing health condition, a mental health problem or a specific learning difficulty such as dyslexia, you can apply for the Disabled Students' Allowance (DSA).

The DSA provides financial help to pay for services or equipment that you may need to support your academic work. For example, one to one study support or specialist software. DSAs do not have to be repaid and are not means tested.

Learn more on the Student Finance England website.

Our Assistive Technology Centre (ATC) is based in the Library and is an invaluable resource for many students.

It offers a range of systems and services support students with disabilities, including specialist software and the potential to loan certain equipment.
