Our Learning Support team is on hand to provide initial advice and information for individuals who have an additional support need/disability, including support in applying for DSA (Disabled Students’ Allowance). Individuals wishing to study at the college are advised to disclose their disability early in the application process. For further information and advice about DSAs visit www.direct.gov.uk/dsas.
As a higher education student living in England, you can apply for a Disabled Students’ Allowance (DSA) if you have a disability, including a:

The support you get depends on your individual needs and not on income. For further advice and/or you require support accessing this information, please contact the Learning Support team on:
