Supporting Students’ Learning

As universities and colleges return after the winter break, it’s a great time to emphasise the funding support available for students with a learning difficulty, health problem or disability.

The Disabled Students Allowance (DSA) is a non-income assessed allowance to cover any extra costs or expenses you might have while studying, which arise because of your disability.
