Academic support during your studies

Learning Facilitators (LF) are employed by Edge Hill, are based in Student Services and provide academic support. Your LF will work in partnership with you to enable you to manage your own learning and progress through negotiation and commitment, if you have DSA funded support. We are student focused and provide support sessions face to face or remote depending on your needs and team availability. You will plan they days and times your sessions take place with your Learning Facilitator.

Can anyone help with applications for Disabled Students’ Allowances (DSA)?

Disabled Students’ Allowance (DSA) is a non-means tested allowance which currently funds academic and practical support to enable you to study at university. There are people on hand at the University to help with any queries you may have or extra information you require.

Visit our dedicated DSA page to find out more information.

This support is based on your individual learning needs and recommended in your Study Needs Assessment Report (SNAR). Together, you and your LF will identify strategies to facilitate your learning and to enable you to be as independent as possible. LFs will support you through key transition points and signpost you to other services including Money Advice, Accommodation and Careers to enable you to get the most from your time at university and when you leave. The University will also make reasonable adjustments based on your individual requirements.

Academic support is awarded by your funding body and occasionally support may be delivered by another provider. If your Disabled Students’ Allowances mentoring or study skills support is to be delivered by another organisation, please contact them for more details.
