Access team

Hereward Access Centre has been providing needs assessments for UK students who are eligible for the Disabled Students Allowance (DSA) since 1986. As a not for profit centre with expertise in assistive technology and disability, we have a flexible approach to changing circumstances and aim to ensure you get the right support to meet your needs.

National statistics and feedback from the students we see suggest that DSA can make a huge difference. The correct support can:
  • Make study easier and so help you to achieve higher grades
  • Remove frustrations and barriers to learning
  • Help you organise and prioritise your study
  • Increase motivation and reduce anxiety
