What are Disabled Students’ Allowances (DSAs)?
DSAs are grants to help pay for the extra costs associated with studying that are incurred as a direct result of a disability or specific learning difficulty. The allowances can help to pay for a non-medical one to one support, specialist equipment and software, travel and other course-related costs. The allowances are neither means-tested nor repayable.
The University can provide DSA funded students with specialist academic, mental health and study skill mentoring. It is the student's choice whether to engage with the mentoring services.
