Studying in Flanders with a disability
As a student, an international experience contributes to your personal development, your social skills, the development of your 21st century skills and last but not least your language skills. It is a unique experience where you get to know people from all over the world that prepares you for a future in international work environments.
Having a disability should not keep you from going abroad. In Flanders, students with disabilities are entitled to support services and academic accommodations to help them overcome the barriers that arise from the interaction between their disability and the academic environment.
As an international student coming to Flanders you are also entitled to these support services and accommodations given that you have your disability registered at your host institution. On this webpage you can find all the necessary information to prepare and facilitate your international exchange in Flanders.
