Study abroad with a disability

Students who have a disability can apply for extra financial support for additional costs that studies abroad or a traineeship may result in.

Support through Erasmus+

Within the Erasmus programme students with special needs can apply for financial support to cover any additional costs that exchange studies, traineeship or field studies abroad may result in. For example, students may have to pay extra to bring support equipment/aid with you, additional costs for accommodation, psychological treatments or to make an essential preparatory visit. If the host institution offers pedagogical support for free, students cannot apply for extra funding. Please ensure you contact the Unit for International Mobility in time.
