Studying abroad with a disability

Last changed: 11 May 2016

As a student at SLU, you have many different opportunities to study abroad for a year, a semester or a shorter period. Students with a disability are given the same opportunities to study abroad as all other students.

Remember that you must do a lot of the preparation for your studies abroad yourself. If you are interested in studying abroad, you can find out more on the Study abroad pages. These contain information about where you can study and how to apply. If you need educational support during your studies abroad, please contact SLU:s international exchange coordinators as soon as possible.

Studying abroad involves a lot of preparation, including filling in application documents, keeping an eye on deadlines, arranging somewhere to live, applying for a visa, etc. If you would like educational support during your studies abroad, you should try to find out what is available to you at the university you want to go to as soon as possible in order to obtain the best conditions. All universities and all countries are different and no university will operate exactly the same as SLU.

An international guide and a searchable database containing information about opportunities for study and placements around the world can be found at Independent living.
