If you have a disability, learning difficulty or long-term health condition, the Disabled Students' Allowance (DSA) can help you to pay for extra costs that come as a result.
For example, the DSA can help to pay for a non-medical helper (such as a BSL interpreter, specialist mentor, one-to-one study skills tutor), specialist equipment and travel assistance. It is not means-tested: all UK students who are studying full or part-time on an undergraduate or postgraduate degree can apply.
The university's Disability and Dyslexia team can advise on making your application and help to arrange any agreed support. Remember that the DSA cannot fund expenses that are not related to your disability.
To find out how to apply to DSA, watch the video below.
