    So I sent off my DSA form with evidence today. I did get it for undergrad (like 5 years ago) so can't really remember the process.

    When will I hear back?
    Will it be by letter, email, phone?
    How long until an assessment is arranged?

    Thanks *

    Who is your funding body? It varies a lot between them

    I'm not sure, how do I find out? I just applied through SFE.

    I was with sfw which is much faster but from what I ve heard it can be up to 3 months from start to finish. It could depend on whether your local needs assessment centre has a waiting list for appointments, I was very flexible with mine so didn't have to wait 2-3 weeks to get one.
