DSA is Disability Student's Allowance and is available for students who need additional support to complete their studies and obtain their degree. It’s paid through Student Finance (England, Wales or Ireland) and offers a variety of options for support depending on your health issue or disability and what needs you have to complete your degree.

When applying through UCAS, you will be asked to declare if you have a disability so that Student Finance can then contact you and get the application process started.

A disability is something that meets the criteria as set out in the Equality Act 2010. It covers long term medical conditions that have a significant impact on day-to-day life and your ability to study. This could include mobility issues, heart related issues, arthritis, bronchitis, or mental health including bi-polar, depression and anxiety.
