Disabled Students’ Allowance
Disabled students’ allowance (DSAs) may be available if you have a disability or specific learning difficulty including dyslexia. DSA’s are intended to help with the purchase of specialist equipment and non-medical helpers. We advise that you apply and have your DSA in place before you start your course, and how much you receive does not depend on your income or that of your family. You will not have to repay this allowance. For more information, please contact Learning Support email learningsupport@hca.ac.uk.
