Students with Disabilities

Studying abroad with a disability? Yes, you can!

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.
 

Counseling

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:

Financial support for stays abroad with Erasmus

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.
