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.
