Disabled Students’ Allowance (DSA)
Some students are eligible for Disabled Students’ Allowance (DSA), which covers some of the extra costs you have because of a mental health problem, long term illness or any other disability. You can get DSA on top of your other student finance and you do not need to repay it. The Disability and Dyslexia Service at Queen Mary can provide advice and guidance about accessing DSA.
