Specialist Mentoring is suitable for anyone who:

  • Is undertaking Higher Education
  • Is studying in the North East of England
  • Is eligible or in receipt of Disabled Student Allowance (DSA)

DSA is support to cover the study-related costs you have because of a mental health problem, long term illness or any other disability. The type of support and how much you get depends on your individual needs - not your household income. You do not have to payback DSA. Find out more about DSA here.
