Staffordshire Regional Access Centre

Regardless of where you live, or where you intend to study, you can make an appointment for a Disabled Student Allowances (DSA) Study Needs Assessment once you have received your approval letter from your Funding Body.

We will ask you to send us the following information prior to your assessment so that your Assessor may research your course requirements and your disability: 

  • Your approval letter from your Funding Body

  • A copy of your supporting disability evidence

  • A completed pre assessment questionnaire

  • A copy of your previous Needs Assessment Report (if applicable)

We ask that you return this information to us within 5 working days  of booking your appointment

We cannot assess your needs without this information.  The information you give is held securely and conforms to Staffordshire University Data Protection standards.

In light of the current situation regarding Covid-19 and with the safety of students and staff in mind we will be conducting all  DSA Study Needs Assessments via remote methods.  A remote needs assessment is a DSA Study Needs Assessment conducted by the telephone or online. 

We want to reassure you that we will still be able to make the same recommendations, talk you through any equipment or software recommendations and if you have access to a computer or smartphone be able to demonstrate how these work online. 

If you would still prefer to wait for a Face to Face appointment, then we will take your details and contact you once we are able to resume Face to Face appointments.
