Our free webinar will take place on Thursday 24  June between 10am and 11am. It  will talk you through:

  • What support a university may typically offer
  • When, who and how to contact the university you’re attending or hoping to attend
  • What the difference between Disabled Students’ Allowance (DSA) and university is
  • What wider support is available for you.

There will be time to ask questions of our panel.


Presenters include:

  • Tara Chattaway, Student Support Manager at Thomas Pocklington Trust
  • Mo Onyett, Student Adviser at the University of York.
