Applications for DSA funding can be made by those who have applied for or are studying a Higher Education course (including foundation degrees). This funding is for UK students or those who have been residing in the UK for a minimum of five years.
International and EU students are not eligible for DSA. Please see our Support for International students page for information on the support you can access from UEL. Please note you will need to be logged into your UEL account to view this page.
To apply for DSA students need to have a formal diagnosis and provide evidence of this. Students need to provide a letter from a doctor, such as a GP or consultant confirming the diagnosis and symptoms (how it affects you).
If you do not have the required evidence you can ask your doctor to complete the DSA Disability evidence form.
For a Specific Learning Difference (i.e. Dyslexia / Dyspraxia) you need a full diagnostic report. The report must be from a qualified Specialist Teacher or Educational Psychologist. If you do not have a diagnosis or report, please see our page on Testing for Dyslexia, Dyspraxia and ADHD.
