Study Needs Assessments
If you qualify for Disabled Students' Allowance (DSA) you are required to attend a Study Needs Assessment (SNA); this is an opportunity to discuss your particular situation with a specialist assessor who will make recommendations to your funding body on the support needed for your course, such as assistive software or specialist support.

Your assessment is paid through your Disabled Students' Allowance (DSA) funding, and is not means tested. When you receive a letter from your funding body confirming you are eligible for DSA and asking you to book an assessment, this is confirmation that your funding body will pay the assessment fee.
- A Full Initial Assessment = £625.00
- Funded Review (approved by your funding body) = £300.00
Exeter Access Centre will charge a single assessment fee, which will cover all work required for the duration of course study and applies to all students (both new and existing).
