What is Disabled Student Allowance?

The Disabled Student Allowance, or DSA, is support to cover the study-related costs you have because of a mental health problem, long term illness or any other disability. This can be on its own or in addition to any student finance you get.

The type of support and how much you get depends on your individual needs – not your household income.

This support includes assistive technology, ergonomic furniture and accessories, access to printers and ink and more!

How can I apply to Disabled Student Allowance?

If you have already applied for student finance, you can simply sign-in to your student finance account on the government portal and start your Disabled Student Allowance application. If you do not have an online account because you applied via post, fill in the DSA1 form.

If you have not applied to student finance because you do not need to, you can fill in the DSA1 form, to apply only for Disabled Student Allowance.

Once your eligibility for DSA is confirmed, Student Finance England may ask you to contact an assessment centre to work out what help you need. This is known as a needs assessment. Do not book this until Student Finance England asks you to. The assessment is paid for through any DSA entitlement you may have. After the assessment, you will get a report listing equipment and other support you can get for your course.

Once you have received formal instruction as to what needs you need met, you can begin sourcing these products or services from a Disabled Student Allowance provider, such as Wyvern Business Systems.
