You want to study abroad, but you are not sure how to go about it as someone with a disability. You won't want to miss this virtual webinar course.
Studying abroad in college can be a great way to build one's confidence, gain valuable experience for a career and build friendships that will last a lifetime. People with disabilities are increasingly making up a larger fraction of those going abroad in college, and there is no better time than the present to study abroad.
However, it can also involve many considerations. First of all, you have to figure out what kind of program is appropriate for you. Then, there is a process of strategizing for how you will negotiate the academics, travel and social life with your disability.
That is why Abroad With Disabilities (AWD) and the National Clearinghouse on Disability and Exchange (NCDE), a project sponsored by the US Department of State's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) and administered by Mobility International USA (MIUSA), are teaming up to offer a webinar directed at people with disabilities, covering everything you ever wanted to know about why and how to study abroad.
Join us on February 28 from 6 PM to 7 PM Eastern Standard Time for this exciting study abroad webinar. Learn from experts representing AWD and MIUSA as well as a panel of peers with disabilities who have studied abroad. We will learn about:
- How studying abroad can help you achieve your goals
- Selecting the program for you
- Negotiating reasonable accommodations
Please register if you think you might like to attend. Requests for reasonable accommodations should be made at least seven days in advance. We will do our best to honor requests made after that deadline, though doing so before will enable us to ensure a fully inclusive experience for everyone. The webinar will be captioned.
