You can apply for Disabled Students’ Allowances (DSAs) if you live in England and have a disability that affects your ability to study.

You must also:

  • be an undergraduate or postgraduate student (including Open University or distance learning)
  • qualify for student finance from Student Finance England
  • be studying on a course that lasts at least a year

Whether you qualify for student finance depends on:

  • your university or college
  • your course
  • if you’ve studied a higher education course before
  • your age
  • your nationality or residency status

Need ongoing support from Lipspeakers or sign language interpreters?

We match your needs with suitably experienced professional with a background knowledge in your chosen subject/s.
