More About The Organisation
The Royal National College for the Blind (RNC) is the country’s leading specialist residential college of further education for people with a visual impairment. Our expertise and success has been built over 140 years, and we offer a variety of products and services to a diverse audience.
With over 60 programmes of study available with a wide range of support in all areas, studying at RNC will ensure you can move onto your chosen career path and achieve your ambitions. RNC Learners leave us with confidence and independence, ready for the world of work, higher education and a self sustainable future. With a skilled team of specialist staff to support you throughout your time here, as well as first class resources and facilities, we truly believe there is no better place to study.
It’s not all about learning at RNC; with our Student Union and wide range of activities available on and off campus, RNC learners enjoy a lively social life with the support of their blind and partially sighted peers. From sport to creative arts, knitting to debating, there really is something for everyone.
We are well used to leading the way in what we do, and the 21st century has seen us enter a new era. A multi-million pound campus redevelopment is well under way, ensuring that learners have access to the very best facilities. As home to the England/GB Blind Football Team, who competed in Beijing in 2008, we opened the world’s first football academy for visually impaired footballers in order to find a new breed of talent to compete in London 2012 and beyond. Life at RNC has never been more exciting.
The College is not all about education for the 200 or so learners who come through our doors each year. We also offer specialist training and support to businesses, universities and other education providers, and specialist professionals working with visually impaired people.
