Disabled Students’ Allowance (DSA)
DSA is a government grant that covers study support costs for students in the UK with a disability. It’s non-means-tested, there’s no age limit and it’s non-repayable.
It could help you by paying for extra equipment, support or additional costs, such as printing, a specially adapted computer, or travel.
You can find more information about DSA on our disability support website.
The Snowdon Trust
Aiming to help people living with a wide range of disabilities, The Snowdon Trust can also help provide support through additional funding for disability-related costs. They accept applications from students with physical or sensory disabilities for costs not fully provided for by available statutory funding.

Student Health Association Assistance Fund
Awarded by the Student Health Association, this bursary is designed to help with additional costs incurred as a result of your disability. To apply they typically expect students to have also applied for DSA and be able to provide the outcome of that application.
