Access South West with Plymouth University
Based at 3 Portland Mews in the Plymouth University campus, Access South West specialises in the provision of course related needs assessments for students eligible for DSA (Disabled Students’ Allowances).
Access South West is the region’s largest needs assessment centre, offering an experienced, efficient and friendly service.
Once your funding body has confirmed your eligibility for DSA, they will send you a letter asking you to arrange an assessment. When you receive this letter please contact us (our contact details are shown below).
There are no tests, just a relaxed and friendly discussion where your study needs can be discussed in confidence. Suitable equipment is available and there will be opportunities for this to be demonstrated and/or trialed.
Following the assessment the assessor will produce a report, detailing the recommendations discussed in the assessment, which will be sent to your funding body, but not the college or university unless you give permission to do so. Information in the report is used by the funding body to determine the nature and extent of your award. Typically your funding body will inform you of your award in 3-4 weeks of receiving the report from our assessors.
