After you have applied for Disabled Students' Allowances(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. 

We understand that you may prefer to book your appointment via email. To male a booking via email you will need to inform us of the nature of your disability so that we can send you the relevant booking form. Please do so by sending us an email to

Sheffield Hallam University strongly recommends that disabled students attend Study Needs Assessments 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
