Welcome to Disabled Students Allowances Quality Assurance Group (DSA-QAG) website. This site is for students like you, who are applying for Disabled Students Allowances (DSA).

On this site you can locate DSA-QAG registered assessment centres near you, who can undertake your needs assessment. We provide information about each assessment centre to help you make an informed choice about where to go for your needs assessment.

To search for an assessment centre in England and Wales, please enter your full residential or college / university postcode in the Your Full Postcode field.

Once you have entered a postcode, please select "Search", this will display your results.

Needs assessments for Scottish Institutions are not audited or accredited to DSA-QAG. Scottish institutions follow the Students Awards Agency for Scotland’s process. The below link takes you to the list of validated Scottish Institutions.


We also have information about the DSAs, university disability officers suppliers of disability equipment and non-medical help providers, which we think you may find useful.
