    You have to apply for DSA through Student Finance. If you send in evidence, they will be able to assess whether or not you qualify for DSA.

    I'm wondering the same thing. I'm quite severely colourblind and whilst obviously using a computer in general isn't a problem, there are some careers (like Game Design, although this doesn't interest me) that I know I can't go into.

    I'm not too sure what help DSA would be able to give.
