UK specialist college to target Mena students
Hereford, March 11, 2010
UK-based Royal National College for the Blind (RNC), a specialist provider of further education and training, is set to focus on attracting students from the Mena region who are visually impaired or who have special educational needs.
RNC offers a complete range of vocational and academic programmes together with international foundation (pre university) and English language courses.
In addition, expert training and support in developing independent living skills, mobility and using specialist technologies for work, study or leisure enable students to be more independent when they move on to university or the workplace, and in their domestic lives.
“The Royal National College for the Blind has been at the forefront of specialist education for people with sight loss in the UK for over 130 years,” said Geoff Draper, college principal.
“Responding to an increase in enquiries from the Middle East, we are delighted to be taking steps to reinforce relationships with specialist organisations in the region and look forward to sharing our expertise to improve opportunities for more international students who are blind or partially sighted,” he added.
The Royal National College for the Blind is a leading specialist education base in Europe and has an impressive array of resources to support its education programmes, and exceptional facilities for learning and living on campus, a statement said. – TradeArabia News Service
