All UK students with a disability are eligible to apply for a Disabled Students’ Allowance. It is available for full-time, part-time, undergraduate and postgraduate students with disabilities. Distance learning students are also eligible. The Disabled Students’ Allowance helps with costs you incur (as a direct result of your disability) when attending your course. It is not means tested and you do not have to pay it back.
