Attending university as a student with a vision impairment may feel like a daunting prospect, but it is also an exciting opportunity to learn, grow, have fun and benefit your career.

Right now you probably have a range of questions about going to university, “where do I study?”, “where do I live?”, “how do I finance my studies?”, “how do I make friends?” and “what support is available?”.

We have produced a range of information and guidance to start to answer some of your questions. Find out more by exploring the links in this section.

Not found  what you’re looking for? We’d love to hear from you if there are any questions we can answer, or any resources we can produce to help you and other students with vision impairment. Contact our Student Support Service.
