The possible support that DSA funds will depend on your particular disability.
DSAs may help with the cost of:
- Specialist equipment (EXAMPLE: computer software)
- Non-medical helpers (EXAMPLE: study skills support)
- Extra travel costs you have to pay because of your disability
- Other costs like photocopying.
DSAs do not cover non-academic disability-related costs (EXAMPLE: personal assistants/carers) or costs that any student might have (EXAMPLE: core textbooks) as a result of studying.
