Access International Exchange

Seek Equal Opportunities for Unique Experiences.

Do you have a disability and wonder what it would be like to study, volunteer, or intern in another country? That’s where the National Clearinghouse on Disability and Exchange team comes in.

Our goal is to empower people with disabilities to take advantage of the same international exchange opportunities as everyone else, navigating any access barriers along the way.

Whether you’re only just exploring the options or you’ve already packed your bags, we want to support your goal to participate in a meaningful overseas experience. While international travel of any kind is important, we do not advise about tourist or leisure travel. Ready to get started? Use the menu to find information for U.S. citizens going abroad or non-U.S. citizens coming to the United States.

These free services and resources are made possible by the National Clearinghouse on Disability and Exchange (NCDE), a project sponsored by the U.S. Department of State's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. The project is supported in its implementation by Mobility International USA.
