The Wellbeing Advisor can:

Support through the Disabled Students Allowance (DSA)

​If you have been experiencing long term mental health issues, you may be entitled to support through the DSA​.  This enables Cardiff Met to establish support structures and make reasonable adjustments (such as additional exam arrangements) for the duration of your course.
