We provide a professional and friendly assessment service for students who have applied for the Disabled Students Allowance.
Our assessments look at your individual requirements and the specific demands of your course in order to recommend a comprehensive package of support strategies which are individually tailored to meet your needs.
It takes an average of 13.5 working days from when you first make contact to the final needs assessment report outlining the recommendations made being sent to your funding body.
We have a wide range of equipment and software available for you to see being demonstrated and to evaluate during the assessment. This ensures that you are making fully informed decisions about your support.
We will provide ongoing support throughout the length of your course, from booking your assessment to helping arrange the support and dealing with any changes or queries that you come up afterwards.
OUAC is based at 3 Worcester Street, Oxford OX1 2BX (on the corner of Gloucester Lane and Worcester Street).
Travelling by car
Most travellers by car use the city’s park and ride services, which will take you to within a few minutes’ walk of OUAC. However, if you want to drive directly into Oxford, Worcester Street car park and Gloucester Green car park are both a few minutes’ walk away. View directions and charges here.
Please note you are able to stop outside the building as a ‘drop off point’ but you are unable to park here.
Travelling by bus or train
Oxford's main bus station is a couple of minutes’ walk away and the city’s train station about half a mile away.
A very positive experience
They made me feel completely relaxed and not inhibited by my disability. Matching the equipment to my needs was beyond my expectations. I would undoubtedly recommend this centre.
Thank you for all of your help!
From the very first meeting right through to the end, everyone I met and dealt with along the way was friendly, efficient and a joy to meet. They made the whole process effortless and you could not ask for a better team then they have.
An exceptional assessment centre
The centre has been incredibly supportive, and they have gone over and above to provide assistance. The entire process has been complication free, and I am in a much stronger position to complete my studies.
