FIE works closely with its university partners, placement sites and affiliated organizations to provide an accessible experience for all students. Hannah Feakes, FIE’s Accessibility Managercan assist you with any accessibility needs or queries – from pre-application and throughout your study abroad experience.

FIE, in accordance with its mission, is committed to a comprehensive policy of equal opportunities and as such, our programs are tailored to give access to the widest possible student representation. We recognize that the environment, services, and facilities may be “enabling” or “disabling” and support the social model of disability. Please contact our team with any questions or concerns you may have.

Applications from students with various physical, sensory, cognitive and behavioral/emotional disabilities are welcomed. You are encouraged to declare disabilities on your application form to allow for discussion on access requirements and to provide time for reasonable accommodations to be made.
