5. Disabled Students’ Grants

These are available to eligible undergraduate and postgraduate students to cover the additional study-related costs you may have as a direct result of a disability, long-term health condition, mental health condition or specific learning difficulty. The amount you get isn’t based on your household income. It’s based on your individual needs.

The maximum amount of grant in academic year 2024 to 2025 will be £33,460 and covers the following areas of expenditure:

  • non-medical personal helper
  • major items of specialist equipment, and
  • other disability related expenditure

A separate uncapped travel allowance will also be available for students who incur additional study related travel costs due to their disability.
