Information for DSA assessors

Non-medical helper rates

Our students do not have to pay for support, and our team help students apply for DSA for your specialist support needs. The University of Hull provides specialist 1:1 study skills support (SpLD) tutorials at a cost of £60.43 per hour. Non-Medical Help is funded by Disabled Students Allowance (DSA). See the DSA-QAG price list for more information.
