Postgraduate Disabled Students' Allowances

​Find out more about this product including eligibility, application and payment information.


Postgraduate Disabled Student's Allowances are additional funding to help students pay the extra essential costs they may have as a direct result of a disability, including a long-term health condition, mental-health condition or specific learning difficulty such as dyslexia or dyspraxia.

The support available to an eligible student will depend on their individual needs and not on their income.

Disabled Students’ Allowances do not have to be repaid. However if a student leaves a course early they’ll have to repay any funding they receive after their withdrawal date.

The information on these pages relates specifically to Postgraduate Disabled Students' Allowances.

Eligible postgraduate students can get  up to £10,652 a year.

The postgraduate Disabled Students' Allowance is a single allowance which can be used to help cover costs relating to a disability.
