You can apply for Disabled Students’ Allowance (DSA) to cover some of the extra costs you have because of a mental health problem, long term illness or any other disability.
You can get the allowances on top of your other student finance. You will not need to repay DSAs.
If you’re a part-time student, your ‘course intensity’ can affect how much you get.
How much you get depends on your individual needs - not your household income.
If you decide to submit an application for DSA, you will get confirmation of whether your application is successful within 6 weeks.
It can take up to 14 weeks to get your DSA support in place, as this is done separately.
