Extra support if you have a disability

If you have a disability, long-term health condition, mental health condition or specific learning difficulty (for example dyslexia) you may be eligible to apply for Disabled Students’ Allowances (DSAs). You can apply for DSAs to cover some of the extra costs you have because of a mental health problem, long term illness or any other disability. DSAs are on top of your other student finance, do not need to be repaid and are non-income assessed.

DSA’s can get help with the costs of:

  • specialist equipment, for example a computer if you need one because of your disability
  • non-medical helpers
  • extra travel because of your disability
  • other disability-related costs of studying
Scholarships

There are a number of scholarship opportunities available to postgraduate students. Please see our dedicated postgraduate scholarships page for more information.

We appreciate that many of our students wish to pursue further study after completing their studies with us. We are delighted to offer St George’s alumni and those taught by the Faculty of Health, Social Care and Education a tuition fee discount of 10%. Those students who secure a scholarship are able to apply the discount to any remaining tuition.

To be eligible for an alumni discount you must:
