For students with disabilities, a stay abroad can be very challenging. Besides having to consider the host university and its infrastructure, they must also look for appropriate accommodations, support services and funding options. We encourage students with disabilities to inform themselves about their study abroad options and are happy to support them in their planning and preparation.

“I strongly encourage people with disabilities to consider a stay abroad. It is definitely worth it! I was able to master the challenges involved and became a stronger person as a result.”

“This experience was unparalleled for me and I am very proud and thankful that I took advantage of the opportunity to go on this adventure. I learned a tremendous amount, strengthened my character and language skills and widened my horizon significantly. For these reasons, I can only encourage others who are thinking about going abroad. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain. More than anything else, it was the Irish people that have left a lasting impression on me. Their friendly and relaxed nature as well as their willingness to help is truly unique.”
