Facts and figures

Around about 6% of all students in higher education (about 80,000 students) get support through Disabled Students Allowances, though it is estimated that over double the number (up to 13%) are actually eligible but have not applied for the funding

On average, each student receives support worth £1,750 through Disabled Students Allowances – that doesn’t mean that each student receives £1750, but that the funding pays for support costing this much

In 2019, Government research found that nearly 40% of students report they could not have completed their course without receiving support from Disabled Students Allowances

Disabled Students Allowance do not need to be paid back, are not means tested and do not affect the general student finance application or eligibility for any other funding sources
