Funding your support
Disabled Students' Allowance
Some of the support we offer requires funding. Most UK students with a disability will be able to apply for the Disabled Students’ Allowance (DSA). See the DSA website for information about eligibility and application.
Student Finance England have published a new website about DSA containing videos answering the questions "Is DSA for me?", "How can DSA help me?" and "How do I access DSA?".
If you are not eligible for DSA, please make an appointment with an AccessAbility advisor to discuss funding and support.
Personal care support
Personal care support, help with day-to-day living and local mobility training cannot be funded through the DSA. Your local Social Services (or equivalent) may be able to help. You should contact them as soon as you have made your final choice of University, if not before.
You will need to arrange your personal care support before you come to University.
International students, please see our information on support and funding for international students.
