New Resource for Royal National College for the Blind

The Royal National College for the Blind (RNC) has launched a brand new website reflecting the wealth of education, training, services and expertise on offer at its Hereford campus.

The website is packed with new features, simple navigation and a new ‘Student Zone’. It reflects what RNC has to offer and provides advice for young people with visual impairment who are thinking about their education and future careers.

The new site strives to make the online experience informative and as smooth and seamless as possible. With its responsive design, users can have the same experience across all devices.

Before going live, the website was put through its paces by a test group comprising students, staff and alumni of RNC. The user journey has been examined and the website tried and tested on various platforms including mobile devices.

Ciaron Naughton, who studied at the College from 2016 to 2019, was involved in testing the website before its launch and said:

‘It was an honour to be asked to get involved with testing RNC’s new website. I found a few accessibility issues and worked together with the team to find practical solutions to correct these and make it more accessible for people with visual impairments who are using magnification and screen reading software.’

The College is extremely grateful for Ciaron’s input, along with everyone that took part.

Visit the new site at The College is very keen to hear feedback particularly from its blind and visually impaired audience. This can be via email at or the ‘Leave Feedback’ button on the site.
