About the Organisation
You can apply for Disabled Students’ Allowances (DSAs) to cover some of the extra costs you have because of a mental health problem, long term illness or any other disability.
You can get the allowances on top of your other student finance. You won’t need to repay DSAs.
If you’re a part-time student your ‘course intensity’ can affect how much you get.
How much you get depends on your individual needs - not your household income.
There are four allowances to cover different areas of need:
. specialist equipment, for example a computer if you need one because of your disability
. non-medical helpers
. other disability-related costs of studying
You may get a new computer if you don’t already have one, or your current one doesn’t meet the required specification. More information will be provided to you if you’re assessed as needing a new computer.
You’ll need to pay the first £200, which is the minimum cost that any student is likely to incur when buying a computer.
DSAs don’t cover disability-related costs you’d have if you weren’t attending a course, or costs that any student might have.
