Adding a course to support DSA applications

To allow students to access DSA support, you should continue to update your DSA course yourself.

You should treat this in the same way as all other courses on CMS: enter the relevant fee, term dates and location information and add the course.

You should also choose the appropriate funding level (undergraduate or postgraduate).

The following example shows the format you should follow when you enter the DSA course.
