Disability and Study Abroad

Studying abroad is a great way to experience other countries and cultures.  Many disabled students have taken advantage of these opportunities.

If you are considering study aboard we advise that you discuss this with relevent members of staff and find out about the provision available in your chosen country and institution of study. Although many universities in other countries will be able to offer similar disability services to those that you are used to, this can vary.  By discussing this early, you can receive advice and information on access to the course and different institutions to help you to make an informed choice.

The Disability Service can advise you on accessing Disabled Students' Allowances whilst you are abroad and, with your permission, liaise with your host institution to advise them on your academic support requirements. 

The Study Abroad Office can provide information on where you can study as well as fees and funding.  They have previously advised disabled students studying abroad and have a good knowledge of facilities and support in different countries and institutions. 

The Study Abroad Departmental Officer can provide advice and guidance on course and module options. They have previously advised disabled students studying abroad and have a good knowledge of facilities and support in different countries and institutions.
