This information and advice hub is designed to support students with vision impairment living in England. Our aim is to facilitate and enable students from across the country to network and provide peer support on anything related to Further or Higher Education.
We will continue to develop these online resources to provide information, advice, tips – and to sign post to other places where further support is available.
We want to provide information that you will find helpful. Please contact us with your views, experiences, questions and suggestions on what you would find useful.
You can contact us at: [email protected] or call us on our new Student support line on 0203 757 8040. You will be asked to leave your name, number and a short message and a member of our team will get back to you
You can also join our Student Support network on Facebook.
