Disabled Student Allowance’s are grants that help pay the extra essential costs at college/university you may have as a direct result of your disability, including a long-term health condition, mental-health condition or specific learning difficulty, such as dyslexia or dyspraxia.  You don’t have to pay these back.

DSAs can help with the cost of having a person to support you, (such as a note-taker or a sign language interpreter), items of specialist equipment, travel and other study-related costs.

For more information please look at the following article on DSA’s.
