Welcome to Access South West

At Access South West we arrange assessments for students applying for the Disabled Students’ Allowances (DSAs)

The Needs Assessment (officially referred to as the Study Aids and Study Strategies Assessment) provided by our team of highly experienced assessors will identify the strategies available to participate fully in Higher Education.

These strategies often involve the recommendation of assistive technology equipment and specialist support. Having applied and successfully met the criteria to obtain Disabled Students’ Allowances – evidence of having a disability or learning difficulty will be required – contact us directly to arrange an appointment for your Needs Assessment.

Should you need a diagnostic assessment – evidence of a specific learning difficulty – we will be happy to direct you to a qualified specialist.
