Going to college is the next exciting step on your education journey. It is also a time when you will be growing in your independence and making important moves towards your educational and career goals.

Being a blind or partially sighted student can sometimes present a few extra challenges, but with the right support and information these can be overcome.

Here you’ll find information and guidance to help you on your journey through college as a blind or partially sighted student. It’s also a great place for parents and education professionals to find resources to help support blind and partially sighted students through their studies in college and further education.
