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, such as: “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 in the sections below.

Can’t find 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. You can contact us at, or call us on 0203 757 8040.
