Disabled Students' Allowance pays for support to level the playing field in Higher Education for students with disabilities including dyslexia, dyscalculia and Dyspraxia.


DSA Study Needs Assessments help by:

  • Clarifying the support you are entitled to at university or college
  • Investigating appropriate assistive technology to help make your studies easier
  • Specifying appropriate exam support, such as extra time
  • Exploring the possibility of human support, such as study skills tutors or mentors
  • Securing entitlement to university or college support
  • Providing advice to the university and potential placements as to how to support you best
  • Giving you a one-to-one secure environment to discuss your needs

DSA can help with additional study costs incurred as a direct result of a disability, such as a physical disability, mental health difficulty, long-term illness or a specific learning difficulty such as dyslexia.

DSA is available to full-time and part-time undergraduate and postgraduate students.
