Who is eligible to receive support?
You may be eligible to apply for DSA if you have an additional learning need (such as a Specific Learning Difficulty), a disability or a medical condition. You will need to provide evidence such as a Diagnostic Assessment report by a psychologist or qualified assessor, or a letter from a medical professional. Since requirements change, it is useful to check the funding body website (e.g. SFW, SFE) for updates.
When do I apply for the Disabled Students’ Allowance?
You can apply before you start your course, or if you are unsure, we can support you through the process.
Once you are enrolled on your course, you may be eligible to receive a diagnostic assessment to establish if you have a specific learning difficulty. The resulting report may be used as evidence to apply for DSA depending on the outcome of the assessment.
