Studying Abroad: Accessibility

Students with disabilities successfully attend study abroad programs all over the world each year. If you are a student with any type of disability — physical, learning or mental health — , we encourage you to contact us as early as possible to discuss accommodations and support. Planning ahead and communication are important to preparing for your experience abroad.

Please note that the location that you are applying to may have specific accessibility challenges such as uneven terrain, cobblestones, stairs, lack of specialized equipment, and differing attitudes and laws regarding accessibility. You also may find that medications typically prescribed in the U.S. may not be available or legal in your host country. It is important to allow extra time to plan the appropriate arrangements for your time abroad.

However, our team at Spanish Studies Abroad is here to help support you to the best of our ability in arranging necessary accommodations for your study abroad experience. We encourage you to tell your Admissions Advisor if you need any special arrangements.
