What is DSA?

Disabled Students' Allowance

Disabled Students’ Allowance (DSA) is designed to support students with study related costs incurred because of having a specific learning difficulty (e.g. dyslexia or ADHD), a mental health condition, a physical disability, a sensory disability, a long term illness or other disability.

The video below outlines what DSA is, the eligibility criteria, and the process for applying and accessing DSA support.
