You can claim Disability Student Allowances (DSAs) alongside your usual student loan. DSA’s are not loans or benefits, so they will not need to be repaid when you leave university. When claiming DSA, you will need to attend an assessment to determine your needs and abilities. You can find out more about DSA on the government website.
Applications can take up to three months to arrange so it’s best to apply early.
