Appointments are normally available within 3 working days. All appointments will be held within 15 working days in compliance with the DSA QAG QAF.

Your needs are unique - Our aim is to enable you to achieve your academic goals.

You will have the opportunity to discuss the support you feel you need to attain your true potential. The Assessor may also be able to suggest alternative or additional strategies to help you.

Our aim is, ultimately, your success and we hope to achieve this by enabling you, motivating you and encouraging you to think positively about your ability to succeed.

Iona is a Quality Assurance Group (DSA-QAG) Accredited Assessment Centre. We carry out Assessments of Needs for students on behalf of all Funding Bodies and for all Higher Education Institutions. We can help students with the application process for the Disabled Student Allowances (DSAs).

We also organise various events and conferences and DSA related training with details published here on our website as appropriate.
