Disability Support Allowance

As a parent with a disabled child starting university in September I am anxious to find out how they can obtain DSA that we have heard about from university wellbeing and disability advisors at various open days we have been to.
I believe it is applied for alongside student maintenance loan finance but I would like to know if that is correct and if a separate application has to be made?

Hi there,

It's a separate application, that's right. When you apply online you'll be asked if you want to apply for DSA as well.

If you have any questions in the meantime you can e-mail the DSA team directly using this address.

Thanks, Graeme
