Support our Claim It! campaign

The DSA Claim It! campaign offers advice and information about Disabled Students' Allowances (DSAs) and other university-led adjustments. 

This is extra funding and support that can help university students with a wide range of disabilities and extra needs to achieve their full potential. The funding comes from the Government and doesn't have to be paid back - or your university may well be able to offer lots of extra help and support which doesn't require any funding at all.

Check your eligibility for extra support in Higher Education.

Many people don't know about the extra support - or are worried about asking for help as they feel it may affect their career opportunities. This campaign provides an easy way to check whether you could be eligible and then links you through to relevant information and extra support.

Why do we need a DSA Claim It campaign?

  • It's estimated that in 2017 nearly half the people eligible for DSA did not make a claim.
  • For many students the funding from DSA and the extra support from their uni allows them to continue studying, rather than leaving their course.
  • Every student deserves the help they need to achieve their true potential.
