You want to study abroad, but you are not sure how to go about it as someone with a disability. Check out our latest webinar recording!
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), the National Clearinghouse on Disability and Exchange (NCDE), and The Global Access Files teamed up to offer a webinar directed at people with disabilities, covering everything you ever wanted to know about why and how to study abroad.
