Funding for disabled students

Disabled Students' Allowances

These are grants to help meet the extra course costs students can face as a direct result of a disability, long term medical condition, or specific learning difficulty. They are aimed at helping disabled people to study on an equal basis with other students.

Eligible full-time, part-time and postgraduate students can apply for Disabled Students' Allowances.

For more information go to the Funding page within Support for your Studies.  You can also contact Disability Support Services if you have any questions about the allowances. 

You can also find out about the allowances on the web pages
