While everyone’s experience is different, preparing yourself ahead of time and knowing which resources are available can be helpful.
Every country perceives sexuality and gender expression differently and you should think about how your study abroad destination may react to your identity and how freely you’ll be able to express yourself when you’re abroad. While you should not feel pressured to closet yourself while you’re away, it’s important to have a grasp on how your expression can be perceived in a different cultural context.
In order to help prepare you to have the best time while abroad, here are some resources we have gathered to get you started.
Please note that the location that you are applying to may have specific accessibility challenges such as uneven terrain, cobblestones, stairs, lack of specialized equipment, and differing attitudes and laws regarding accessibility. You also may find that medications typically prescribed in the U.S. may not be available or legal in your host country. It is important to allow extra time to plan the appropriate arrangements for your time abroad.
However, our team at Spanish Studies Abroad is here to help support you to the best of our ability in arranging necessary accommodations for your study abroad experience. We encourage you to tell your Admissions Advisor if you need any special arrangements.
