    Disabled Student Allowance - private funded course

    Disabled Student Allowance - private funded course 3rd Feb 19 at 7:36 PM
    My employer has decided that my role will change due to service changes. The new role requires a degree in a subject that I am not fully trained in and so they are funding a degree through the Open University.

    The problem is that I am disabled and will require support on the course. I previously had a disabled students allowance for help with my first degree which I completed in 2008.

    Can I apply for DSA for this other course even if SAAS aren't funding it? Both courses are BSc (hons).
    Bounts, Quidco, Shop and Scan, Receipt Hog, Costco Cashback, Debit card cashback

    (unless it's on offer and can get my loyalty points)
