Studying abroad presents students with a disability with exceptional challenges. Yet, you do not have to meet them all on your own. There are various institutions you can turn to for assistance in finding an appropriate host university, applying for financial support and getting assistance on site during your actual stay abroad.
The staff of the International Office is happy to help you in planning your stay abroad. You are interested in a certain country or university? We can find out what the situation there is like for students with disabilities and how to get assistance on site. Through the Erasmus+ program, we can also offer financial support for stays abroad within Europe.
The following websites provide you with helpful information:
The Erasmus+ program promotes equal opportunity. This is why students with a degree of disability (GdB) of 30 or higher are eligible for additional Erasmus funding for an Erasmus+ stay abroad. Seek advice on your funding options from the International Office early on.
The social counseling and financial advice services of the Studierendenwerk can provide further information on funding and social benefits for students with a disability.
If you have any questions regarding your stay abroad, here you can find the respective competent contact persons at your school. They will advise you on any study-related aspects of your stay abroad, including the question of when a stay abroad can be best integrated in your degree program.
