FAQ: What is a DSA?

What is a DSA?

A DSA is a Disability Students’ Allowance. DSA covers everything from obvious injuries or disabilities all the way through to mental illnesses and also to issues such as Dyspraxia, which might not be that well-known, but it can still affect people. You may not be eligible if you are already claiming any other type of grant or bursary, so be sure to check this out before you apply.
