How will my Disabled Students Allowance (DSA) support be put in place?

Once your first choice university has received your Study Aid and Study Strategies Report (this is the report done as a result of your Study Needs Assessment), the relevant team will put the Non-Medical Helper (NMH) support in place – usually a tutor and/or mentor.

You will need to organise the equipment, software and Assistive Technology Training. The Student Finance letter of Entitlement will explain what you need to do. This letter is sent to you after the Study Aid and Study Strategies Report is finalised.

If Aberystwyth University was not your first choice, we will need a copy of your report to check what has been recommended. Please send your report to
