When you apply for a Disabled Students’ Allowance (DSA), you will be asked to provide medical evidence to support your application. A letter from your GP or specialist may be enough to satisfy this requirement, but sometimes you may need to provide more specialised information, for example, an educational psychologist’s report confirming you are dyslexic. If you have a mental health condition, please note Student Finance England require your GP to sign a specific Mental Health Evidence Form. Click here for more information and to download a form.
If you do not have the required evidence to support your application for a DSA, please contact Student Advice as we will be able to assist you. We may also be able to offer financial assistance with the costs of going to see an educational psychologist, as the BGU Learning Fund provides non means-tested awards for this purpose. You can even get financial assistance before you register on your course, as long as you have made a firm acceptance of your offer of a course at BGU.
