Demystifying the DSA assessment process
Our webinar on 15 July 2020, covered the Disabled Students’ Allowance (DSA) assessment process – what’s involved and what this will look like during COVID-19.
The session, designed for students with a vision impairment who are about to start university in England, covered:
- What an assessment is for
- What equipment and non-medical help support you may be entitled to
- What preparation you need to do for the assessment
- What the assessment process will look like during COVID-19
- What will happen next

The NNAC currently represents the majority (approximately 70%) of DSA Assessment Centres in England and all centres in Wales. Its membership consists of a broad range of DSA assessment providers including those based in higher education institutions, private businesses and the Open University DSA service.
