Disabled Student Funding
The Student Disability Service can help you to apply for non-means assessed allowances intended to cover the extra costs or expenses that you may incur while studying and which are a direct result of your disability.
Since every student’s circumstances are different, individual funding will normally be discussed during your first appointment with an Advisor. However, if you wish to make a general enquiry regarding funding, contact us by email firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that it can take up to 3 months for funding to be awarded.
Important: We cannot help with financial assistance for living costs and fees. The University’s Scholarships and Student Finance Office can provide further information on this type of support.
UK Students: Disabled Students Allowance (DSA)
Disabled Students Allowance (DSA) is available to undergraduate and postgraduate UK students:

Funding is available through Disabled Students Support Fund (DSSF) for students who are not eligible for DSA. This includes Overseas, EU and part-time students taking fewer than 60 credits per year.
