What is DSA/Disabled Students Allowances, and what are the benefits?


If you have a disability, long-term health condition, specific learning difficulty (SpLD), or mental health condition you may be eligible for funding from the Disabled Students Allowance (DSA). This allowance is intended to cover any extra costs or expenses that arise while you are studying because of your disability.

Whilst the Wellbeing Service endeavours to provide support during difficult times, this may not be as regular as some students require. DSA can provide some students (with a mental health or ASC condition) consistent support through a specialist mentor. To find out more, visit our DSA webpage.
