the assessment process
Overview of the DSA process
Your Funding Body will ask you to have a DSA Needs Assessment carried out so that your particular needs can be matched with those of your proposed course to ensure that you get the help that you will need.
The DSA assessment will identify the types of equipment and other support you will need, how much it will cost and where to get it from. It will also identify any training you might need to make best use of the equipment recommended, and detail any special examination arrangements. The cost of your DSA assessment will be paid from the Disabled Students' Allowance.
You should not arrange for a DSA assessment without first confirming with your funding body that they agree for you to do so.
