Access for Students DSA Study Needs Assessment Centre - Disabled Students' Allowances

Access for Students will no longer be providing DSA Needs Assessments as the result of a government tender and new suppliers being awarded a contract to carry out these assessments.

If you have recently had a Needs Assessment with us, this has still been sent to the funding body and will be processed in the usual way.

Any queries relating to your DSA will now need to be directed to your funding body. Here are the contact details for each individual funder:

If you are a research council student, please contact the disability team at your university for support.
