1 in 5 students have a disability or support need. We help students who have:
- Dyslexia, dyspraxia, attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and other specific learning difficulties
- Anxiety, depression and other mental health conditions
- Autism and Asperger’s Syndrome
- Long-term illnesses
- Physical impairments
- Sensory impairments
These students may be eligible for the Disabled Students’ Allowance (DSA), which can cover some of the extra study-related costs students may incur due to their impairment, mental health condition, or learning difference.
However, 60% of eligible students are not aware that DSA exists when starting university. This results in delays in accessing the support they are entitled to, with many students missing out on it altogether.
With A2B, a study needs assessment isn’t a test to pass - it's simply a discussion with our assessors to establish students' study needs.
