Answer:

Disabled Students' Allowances (DSA) are non means-tested funds to help full and part time home undergraduate and postgraduate students to pay for extra costs they may incur whilst attending their course, as a direct result of their disability, Specific Learning Differences (e.g. dyslexia, dyspraxia, ADHD) or long term medical condition, including mental health issues. They are distributed by funding bodies such as the Student Loans Company, postgraduate research councils and the NHS.   

The allowances help with:  

  • The cost of specialist assistive software and equipment 
  • The expense of a non-medical personal helper 
  • Other general costs such as additional printing costs
  • Extra travel costs the student has to pay as a result of their disability
Answer:

Details of how to apply for DSA are available via Direct.gov

Answer:

We are carrying out a small pilot where students will be asked to use cards to register their attendance in addition to signing registers.

It has been a long-established process that attendance is taken at certain teaching sessions.

This pilot is not changing the data we collect, it is simply changing the way in which it is collected.

Answer:

We have a limited number of card scanners to use in the pilot so we have limited the pilot to students in three areas only.
