If you’re a student with a learning difficulty, health problem or disability you can apply for Disabled Students’ Allowances (DSA) to cover some of the extra costs you incur.
You can get these allowances on top of your other student finance. You will not need to repay DSA. How much you get depends on your individual needs - not your household income.
If you’re a part-time student your ‘course intensity’ can affect how much you get (i.e. how long your course takes to complete compared to an equivalent full-time course).
