    Hello everyone,

    I am currently waiting on my DSA acceptance letter and I'm wondering what way does the travel allowance work for a taxi, I know that I have to pay the difference between the taxi fare and the bus fare, but is that it?

    And also what way does the Needs Assessment work? I know it's around 2 hours.

    You have to get the receipts, send them off and DSA will pay you back the difference between public transport and the taxis.

    The assessment is an informal chat. They're not trying to catch you out. The chat will be about all areas of study - lectures, getting to and from uni and personal study.
