Please be aware that the responsibility for helping you to organise your Disabled Student Allowance (DSA) support can be found at your Training Development Flight or your Learning Education Centre.
Applicants for the Disabled Student Allowance (DSA) must complete two separate processes:
1. Applications for the Disabled Students Allowance should be made to Student Finance England (SFE)
2. Requesting Access Centre Assessment of Study Support Needs
Applicants can follow both processes simultaneously which, if done, will enable the Access Centre to gain SFE approval to carry out the assessment earlier than would be otherwise. Application forms for DSAs are available online at www.direct.gov.uk/studentfinance.
