Funding for Disabled Students

There are a number of funds available to support disabled students studying in the United Kingdom. 


The main source of funding is Disabled Students Allowances and we strongly encourage all disabled students to apply for support via this route. However, we include below details of several other funds that may be of additional help to some disabled students. 


Please note that your eligibility for all funding depends on things like your fee status and nationality. Also, some funds are available to apply for once you have an offer of a place at the University of Worcester but for others, you may need to have started your course.
