Did you know that?

As a student with a disability, you can also study through an apprenticeship (there is no maximum age limit) and conclude a contract with a company. This apprenticeship contract takes place in a company and in a training centre. As a disabled apprentice, you will benefit from special accommodations due to your status. You will also need to be recognised as a disabled worker (RQTH).

Disability referrers

In order to facilitate and articulate this support, three disability advisors are present on campus.

Do not hesitate to contact them if you have any questions about your health or if you need any specific accommodation. They are at your disposal to guide you and accompany you in the steps to be taken.
