Our Fee

Fees are paid for by your funding body. You will not be personally charged for this assessment.

The fee charged by this centre for study needs assessments = £499.00 + VAT £99.80 = Total £598.80.

This fee is inclusive for all work required for the duration of your study. If you take a break from studying, start a new course or provide medical evidence to your funding body of an additional disability you may also be entitled to a funded review assessment.

If you have any questions about fees or any other issue please call our friendly DSA team on 01926 464095.

On Foot

If you are walking from the City Centre, from Northumberland Street, turn onto Saville Row and carry on through the crossings until you reach MEA House (following signs to the entrance)

By Rail & Metro

AbilityNet is located 1 mile from Newcastle Central Railway Station, approximately a 20 minute walk or a short taxi journey. We recommend you take the Metro from Central Station, with the nearest stops being Monument or Manors. We are then approximately a 10 minute walk.

By Car

We recommend that you plan your route ahead of your journey, as the one-way system can be difficult to navigate. You can reach us from John Dobson Street (B1307), heading north, turn right onto St Mary’s Place and then take the next right onto College Street. Head down onto Ellison Place where you will see the cark park and MEA House.


A Pay and Display car park can be found next to MEA House, and there is also limited Disabled Blue Badge parking at the front of the building.

On Arrival

Please head to reception and inform them you are here for a DSA Needs Assessment with AbilityNet. We are located on the 4th floor of MEA House. When exiting the lift, turn left, and we are the first door on the left.
