Disability and dyslexia support
The Student Support team at NUA provides a dedicated Disability Support service, including help with applications for funding support through the Disabled Students’ Allowance (DSA).
When an applicant or student meets the government’s definition of disability they will be eligible for support through the DSA. The University will also have a duty to make any reasonable adjustments that may be required in support of that individual.
Most support for students with specific learning differences (such as dyslexia), physical or mental health conditions or other disabilities, is provided through DSA. Students must apply for DSA before receiving support.
We also recommend applying for DSA as early as possible, as the application process can take as long as three months. Staff in the Student Support team are available to provide support and guidance at every stage of the application process. Please email spLD.firstname.lastname@example.org for advice and assistance.
Please note that EU and International students are not eligible for Disabled Students’ Allowance and should contact the Student Support team for advice via email@example.com
