Studying abroad is an experience that will help you reach personal goals, challenge your ideas about the world, ignite your independence or offer unique opportunities to teach, assist or research with others from different cultures in your field.
Some considerations for students with disabilities wishing to study abroad include:
- A place where the local people speak the same language as you do or a place where they speak a different language
- A place where the culture/food is similar to yours or to one which is different from yours
- A place where disability access is good and attitudes are progressive or a place where the experience of being there is more preferential than your independence or use of adaptive equipment
- A country where programs that interest you are established (e.g. art programs of Italy, Spanish language programs of Mexico, eco-tourism in New Zealand, AIDS/HIV prevention programs in Africa) or one where you are developing your own program
- A country where the climate is similar to where you currently live or one that is different and one where you are willing or medically able to adjust to a different climate
