Support for students taking the big step

Starting out at college or university is a big, exciting challenge. To ensure you can get the very most out of the experience, Blind Low Vision NZ supports students in a number of ways.

We can help you feel confident and independent, so you can enjoy your studies and build a future without limits.

Blind Low Vision NZ supports students by:

  • linking up students and prospective students with disability support providers at their chosen university or college.
  • putting you in touch with people and organisations providing scholarships.
  • helping you access funding for disability assessments – and sourcing any equipment or training you need.
  • advocating for you if necessary.
