Report Post

Prince Mohammad Bin Fahd University pursues efforts to bring Prince Sultan College for the Visually Impaired (PSCVI) to reality.

The PSCVI is intended to provide the best environment to help the visually impaired to overcome their impairment and integrate into the community.

It aims to prepare and qualify the visually impaired to be self-sufficient and integrate into the community and fulfil their ambition in life.

For this purpose, the PSCVI shall:

  • provide learning and training opportunities for the visually impaired.
  • prepare the visually impaired College education and employability in the workplace.
  • Help the visually impaired acquire life skills to become self-confident and self-sufficient.

The college fills in the huge deficit facing the Saudi society and the world in general in the provision of education and training services for visually impaired.

To establish the College, PMU had partnered with two consultants for the project: The Royal National College for the Blind (RNCB) in Hereford, UK as the academic consultant and ZAS in Toronto, Canada as the Architectural Design Office.
