Tips for Students with Disabilities Going Abroad!

Courtesy of the University of Kentucky’s Study Abroad Office
  1. Disclose your disability needs to program staff early, so appropriate arrangements and reasonable accommodations can be made in advance.
  2. Remember that other cultures may provide disability access in a different way—learn about what types of accommodation are typically provided in your host country and be flexible and open to different ways of accommodating your disability.
  3. Before you go, find out as much as you can about your host culture and how they view disability by reading, talking to other students, and attending pre-departure orientation sessions. The more you know, the better prepared you will be for the interaction between your disability and the new environment.
  4. Think about how you will answer questions about your disability in the language of your host country—look up key vocabulary words ahead of time.
