    Hi everyone,

    I was wondering if somebody can help me with a issue with funding/loans. I was wondering if part time students can claim DSA and what a disability is, I have a heart condition, auto-immune thryoid disorder, asthma, and joint problems. Would this mean I could be eligable to claim DSA? I have contacted Student Finance by phone but nobody could seem to really help me, considering I am studying a part time course.

    Hi Ayiesha,

    Yes part time students are entitled to apply for and receive DSA too.

    You can find lots of info about eligibility and entitlement to DSAs here: http://bit.ly/15xKihp

    Hope this helps!

    That's great, thank you. I assume my heart condition falls into the categaory of long term health condition?
