The Disabled Student’s Allowance (DSA)

The DSA comprises three separate funds, which can be used to pay for specialist personal assistance (such as support tutorials, IT training), purchase of specialist equipment and software or consumables. 

The DSA also funds the ‘Needs Assessment’ where specific requirements would be discussed.  The student should contact Student Finance England for an application form.  Further details about the DSA are available in a DfES leaflet ‘Bridging the Gap’.  This can be downloaded from the DfES website on:
