5.2 Disability Support and Allowances

PDF version

The Disabled Students’ Allowance (DSA) is a UK Government scheme which provides extra financial help for ‘home’ students who have a disability, an ongoing health condition, a mental health condition or a specific learning difficulty like dyslexia.  The procedure for applying for a DSA  is  time-consuming,  so  students  who  are  considering  applying  should  contact  the University’s  Disability  Advisory  Service  as  early  as possible. They can also contact Linacre’s Dean of Equality and Diversity, Dr Heath Rose.

Overseas students with disabilities should also contact the University's Disability Advisory Service (DAS) as early as possible. If support is recommended after a DAS assessment, this will be funded by the University and the College.
