Presentations are an increasingly common assessment method in higher education, with 93% of students having to present as part of their course. Presenting in front of a room filled with your peers can be an extremely daunting task, yet it is a key skill which you’ll need to grasp as a student.
This is why we created Present Pal - to allow users to deliver a more confident and prepared presentation through interactive flashcards on your smartphone/tablet with dyslexia-friendly features.
Disabled Students’ Allowances (DSA)
Present Pal has been approved by the Disabled Students’ Allowances and is available for free to UK students with disabilities.
The Disabled Students’ Allowances is a UK grant which supplies students with disabilities, long-term illnesses and mental health problems with a variety of assistance during their time at college or university.
The DSA grant covers:
specialist equipment and assistive technology
extra travel because of your disability
and other disability-related costs of studying
The process involves proving your eligibility for student finance, applying online for student finance, receiving approval and organising a needs assessor appointment and meeting with a needs assessor to finalise your requirements.
Use the online eligibility checker to see if you are eligible to claim DSA!
