Special thanks

5.0 rating

A special thanks to my assessor, who carried out my DSA assessment! The process from receiving my entitlement letter up until starting university with my new laptop was made very clear and easy to follow. The assessor was incredibly helpful with regards to assessing what I needed for uni and thanks to them I am now making very good use of the software and hardware that was provided! Thank you so very much!! 🙂

Excellent service

5.0 rating

My assessor was very nice and made me feel relaxed and comfortable. They asked lots of questions to ensure they could request the best equipment for my needs, without making it feel like an interrogation. I struggled to find the entrance to the centre and received excellent directions over the phone, as well as someone coming to meet me in the car park to make sure I didn’t get lost again!

So helpful

5.0 rating

The assessor has been so helpful through My journey with DSA. I have always felt listened to and have always been responded to quickly and helpfully. My DSA assessment was very thorough and I felt that the assessor really tried to personalise my assessment and ensure I got exactly what would help me. I’m still in regular correspondence and have been well supported by all of the staff at the Surrey Assessment Centre. I have been provided with excellent and professional service.
