What is the Needs Assessment Centre?

What is the Needs Assessment Centre?

The Needs Assessment Centre will assist you in applying for Disabled Students' Allowance (DSA) through a tailored needs assessment. Assessors from the Needs Assessment Centre have a wealth of experience in supporting, advising and guiding students with a wide range of needs. Your Needs Assessment Centre experience will ensure that your needs assessment will be individual and tailored specifically to prepare you for university life and reach your potential.

The Needs Assessment Centre is open to any students who are entitled to Disabled Students’ Allowance (DSA) or Student Bursaries for Nursing students. If you are an existing or prospective student for any other UK or Republic of Ireland university, we can carry out your needs assessment to have the support in place at your chosen university. If you are from the Republic of Ireland, you may be eligible for funded assistance similar to DSA under the European Social Fund (ESF).
