Disabled Students' Allowances (DSAs) are grants for disabled students in Higher Education. These help to cover extra costs that you may have to pay when attending your course as a direct result of disability, a mental health condition or specific learning difficulty. The allowance can help with various costs, including a non-medical helper, major items of specialist equipment, and travel. You can apply for the DSA if you're a full-time, part-time or postgraduate student.
