Disability Abroad

Students with disabilities participate in study abroad programs around the world; the key to a successful experience is planning. Understand, however, that attitudes, accessibility, and accommodation for students with emotional, mental, learning, or physical disabilities may vary at different program sites and locations. 

Think about how you will manage these differences and seek as much information as possible before you depart. 

Planning and campus resources

Discuss your study abroad plans with your Study Abroad Adviser and Northwestern’s Services for Students with Disabilities. Our offices will work with you to discuss reasonable accommodations abroad and assist you with the planning and pre-departure process.

To better help you prepare, please contact us as early as possible.
