The Disabled Students’ Allowance (DSA) can help if a a student has difficulty with settling into the routine of being at university.  This may be a particularly difficult time if you are dyslexic or experience any forms of mental ill-helath – anxiety or depression.

A DSA mentor can help you on a one-to-one basis with things like sorting out your timetable, setting milestones and deadlines for your work, talking through things that trouble you, etc.  They are independent of any medical support or counselling you may already  receive and can just be a neutral helping hand.

It could be worth requesting mentoring support when you have your DSA needs assessment.
