SuperNova for Students funded by DSA

If you assess the needs of students in further and higher education - or recommend assistive technology for students funded by the Disabled Students Allowance (DSA) - you can feel confident recommending SuperNova to students.

SuperNova is robust software that's easy to learn. This technology is simple to use and suitable for all age groups. It adapts to changing needs and the transition from school to university and on to the workplace.

  SuperNova for Education  

Exclusive Offer for DSA Students

Students funded by a Disabled Student's Allowance (DSA) who purchase SuperNova with a twelve-month Software Maintenance Agreement (SMA) will receive the SMA free in their second and third year of study.

This exclusive DSA offer is designed so students who are blind or partially sighted have peace of mind that their SuperNova will keep pace with Windows 11 as it evolves, and if their sight changes during their studies.

To ensure DSA-funded students receive their free upgrade: quote 'DSA' and their full name on all orders, quote requests and price enquiries.
