After you have applied for DSA and your funding authority has written to you to say you are entitled to DSA, you will need to book a Study Needs Assessment.

Contact the Sheffield Regional Assessment Centre to make an appointment- they're based at Sheffield Hallam University.

To book a Study Needs Assessment, call 0114 225 3623 or complete the Appointment Request Form.

For Assessment Centres in other locations visit the DSA QAG website.

Sheffield Hallam University strongly recommends that disabled students attend Study Needs Assessment at SRAC for the following reasons:

  • high quality assessments
  • assessors have good knowledge of the support available at Sheffield Hallam
  • minimum delay between the assessment and receiving your support
  • much easier to access follow-up support after your assessment
