Exeter Access Centre

The Exeter Access Centre provides high-quality Study Needs Assessment Reports for all students who meet the criteria for Disabled Students’ Allowances (DSAs).

Whilst we are based within the University of Exeter, Streatham Campus, our service is available to students applying to study with any Higher Education Provider (HEP) in the UK.

IMPORTANT information for external assessors - the University of Exeter NMH support (Specialist Mental Health Mentoring, Specialist ASC Mentoring, Specialist Study Skills Support and Specialist Study Skills (ASC) Support) is currently at full capacity. Please contact the Access Centre Manager for advice: AccessCentre@exeter.ac.uk.  

Our standards

We are a fully accredited Access Centre working within current government guidelines (https://www.gov.uk/disabled-students-allowances-dsas) to ensure that the standards of service to students are maintained.

We are also part of a National Network of Assessment Centres (NNAC). 

Assessment locations

The Exeter Access Centre provides face-to-face study needs assessments at our main centre in the Forum on the Streatham Campus. If you are returning for a Review, these shorter assessments may be conducted by telephone, by agreement. We do not have any outreach venues.

Please note that due to the current situation with Coronavirus, Student Finance England have given permission for assessments to be given remotely if preferable. Please let us know when we book you in if you would prefer to have your assessment over the phone.

If you have any specific requirements for your visit, such as accessible parking or a BSL sign language interpreter, please let us know so we can make the necessary arrangements.

Please see the AccessAble website for information on the accessibility of buildings around the Exeter campuses. 

Our next appointment will be available in 1 working day.

If you have complex disability needs there may be a longer wait to ensure you are matched to the most appropriate assessor. This is in order to provide the best possible customer service.
