RESOURCE: How To Communicate Your Needs at Uni as a Visually Impaired Student #UniInSight

LOOK Mentor Charlotte shares her advice about how best to communicate the support that you will need as a VI student at University.

Charlotte has recently graduated from York St John University with a degree in Special Education Needs and Inclusion.

During her time at Uni, Charlotte had to explain her needs to a variety of people from course tutors to flatmates, her sports teammates and colleagues on her course.

After 3 years of this, she’s certainly learnt a thing or two about how best to do it! Watch her fab video for some top tips on communicating with confidence.


Charlotte is taking part in the Uni In Sight campaign with Thomas Pocklington Trust, Deafblind UK and LOOK. You can find out more about this campaign, here.
