Disabled Students’ Allowances (DSAs) are non-means-tested allowances available for students who have a disability, long-term health condition, mental health condition or specific learning difficulty.

DSAs are additional funding available for students, without which, they might not have been able to attend a higher education (HE) course and would not have reached their full potential.

The aims of the review were to:

  • review the provision of DSAs and the arrangements for providing financial support for students on designated higher education courses who have a disability, long-term health condition, mental health condition, Autistic Spectrum Condition (ASC) or specific learning difficulties (SpLDs);
  • develop and consider options for improving current arrangements.
