Learning Support for HE students
Our specialist and dedicated team can support you through your course with specialist assistance for learning difficulties or physical disabilities including dyslexia, dyspraxia, visual/hearing impairment, mobility issues, ADHD, ASD and serious illness.
Disabled Students’ Allowance
The DSA is a non means-tested, government funded scheme which can pay for any support that you might need to ensure that you are not disadvantaged during your studies.
We can assist students who may be eligible to apply for Disabled Students’ Allowance (DSA) and arrange for funded support to be put in place. Students with a disability or impairment including specific learning difficulties may be eligible.
All support is recommended during a Needs Assessment where a discussion takes place about how your disability or impairment affects you on an individual basis.
How do I apply?
You can apply for the Disability Students’ Allowance before or during your course, although we recommend that you do so as soon as possible as it can take some time to get everything in place. In order to apply for a DSA you will need to provide evidence of your condition. You will need to complete a DSA1 form as part of the application process, which we can offer assistance with.
