Cuban universities have a record number of 267 visually impaired students this year.
The visually impaired are also making incursions into other specialties. For example, the first two students who graduated in singing at Havana’s Institute of Higher Arts (ISA), and Felix Carrera, who is currently studying Veterinary Science at Havana’s Fructuoso Rodriguez Agricultural University.

More than 600 visually impaired students have also entered polytechnic institutes, art schools and other centers thanks to the opportunities created by the Cuban government.

Among the factors favoring the integration of these students into education institutes is the provision of adequate housing, Braille equipment, tape recorders and other school materials. The students are guaranteed related jobs after graduating.
