Don’t Miss Out: Additional Support for Your Studies

Published by University of Bedfordshire

Did you receive additional support at school or college? Did you disclose a disability on your application form? You may be eligible for additional support at University.


Disclosed a disability?

The Health & Wellbeing Team (Disability) will have emailed you and asked you to register with the team so we can put your support in place before your course starts.

If you haven’t responded, DO IT NOW!


Didn’t disclose a disability but think you may be eligible?

Email disability@beds.ac.uk and request a registration form.


Disabled Students’ Allowances (DSA)

These awards provide equipment, software, specialist 1:1 support and contributions towards travel costs depending on assessed need. These awards are not means-tested.

The application process is very simple – just follow the link from your student loan account. You will need to provide evidence.

More information can be found on the UK Government website.

If you haven’t already applied, DO IT NOW!

You may not receive your award before the beginning of your course. The process can take up to 14 weeks but do not delay any longer. 

Email the team at disability@beds.ac.uk if you’re unsure and have any queries.
