Superior assessments, no matter where you live!
You have qualified for Disabled Students’ Allowance due to a long-term disability, but where do you go from here? The next step is to book in for your DSA Needs Assessment, but with so many centres to choose from how can you be sure you’re going to get the support that you need?
At Yorlinc we pride ourselves on consistently delivering excellent, high quality assessments tailored to you as an individual. This is not a ‘one size fits all’ approach. Our extremely experienced assessors are armed with a wealth of specialist knowledge when it comes to disabilities and providing you with a support package that will help you all the way through your course. Unlike many other centres, we never use freelancers, so we know the quality of assessments we provide are always in line with our high standards.
Can’t travel to us? Don’t worry! We are offering remote assessments via video call to all of our students so we can see you if you’re calling us from round the corner or in Land’s End – it doesn’t matter where you are in the UK you will still be able to receive your bespoke assessment, so give us a call on 01522 530099 or send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to get started.
If you’d rather have a face to face appointment, we would love to see you in our fully equipped centres in Hull, Sheffield, Grimsby, Lincoln and Peterborough.
If you haven't already applied for DSA, visit the gov website to see if you are eligible and apply.
