Case Studies

Hendrix

During his first year at University, Hendrix found his disability impacted his ability to keep on top of his studies. With additional support, he knew he could reach his full potential.

Betsy

Before Betsy received her Disability Students Allowance, she had resigned herself to ‘get through uni’ despite needing additional support.

David

Managing tasks at university was daunting to begin with, but with the help of the DSA, David has become so organised, that he has mastered the art of juggling working full time and studying part-time.

Grace

Despite the struggles Grace faced during her part-time course at the Open University, she didn’t apply for the DSA until her third year. Without the DSA, she would have quit her course, but now, she will finish no matter what!

Kate

After building up a career ladder spanning 22 years, Kate began to develop work-related anxiety. A return to higher education to reclaim her identity while maintaining her mental health led her to the DSA.

Sara

After being diagnosed with scoliosis and fibromyalgia, Sara knew she would need additional support at university, but wasn’t sure how to go about getting it.
