Calling all students with Disabled Student Allowances (DSA)!

If you fall into one of the categories below, you need to reapply for Disabled Students Allowance (DSA) as soon as possible. This applies if you are:

  • are a postgraduate student
  • are a part-time student
  • only get DSA funding (i.e. no tuition fees/maintenance loan etc.)
  • you have reduced or increased the number of modules you are studying for

You don’t need to provide medical evidence and ID every year if you’re continuing on the same course.

If you haven’t already done so, please complete a DSA full form as soon as possible.

If you have done this and have received notification of your allowances for 2021/22 please send this to

If you would like a Disability Adviser to help you go through the form, please contact firstpoint to book an appointment on 01905 54 2551.
