If you’re studying a Higher Education course at CANDI, the government will not cover any disability-related costs or expenses you incur while studying that are in addition to those provided as reasonable adjustments by the college. However, you may eligible for Disabled Students Allowances (DSAs) to help you cover these costs. These are grants and will not be necessary to pay back.
Some HE programmes that also require enrolment with a university partner may provide support from the university’s student support services, provided you also confidentially disclose your needs to them on application, enrolment or once your programme has started. The college and the university will then work together with you to put any support in place to support your studies. Find out more on in the Higher Education section of our Course Fees and Financial Support page.
