Applying to University?

Did you know that if you have a confirmed disability, specific learning difficulty (Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, ASD etc) or long term health condition, it is likely that you qualify for a Disabled Students’ Allowance (DSA) Needs Assessment, which may entitle eligible students to technology, software and non medical support. More information can be found here.

This support could be invaluable, particularly in light of news that some universities will be operating via online lectures until Summer 2021.

If you have applied to university for this September, and you think you are eligible for a DSA Assessment, apply now in order for all support to be in place in time. 

Local assessment centres in Hereford can be found here (telephone assessments are widely available).

If you feel you may have undiagnosed Dyslexia or Dyspraxia but have not been assessed, you may wish to explore booking in for a private Diagnostic Assessment with the Access Centre at The Royal National College for the Blind. For more information, please email
