Accessing support through the Disabled Students Allowance

You may be eligible for additional support such as specialist equipment and/or tutoring/mentoring support through the Disabled Students Allowance. We encourage you to apply as soon as possible as applications can take longer at this time of year. UCAS have produced a user-friendly guide to DSA and you can make an application through your Student Finance England account.

If you are on an apprenticeship there is alternative funding for additional support such as equipment not available through Access to Work and Mentoring support. For more information please email
