  • Mission handicap - Support of students with disabilities

    Throughout their studies, the Mission Handicap supports UCLy’s students to success in their learning.

    Since 2005, UCLy has been implementing a “Mission Handicap” that centralises the requests of UCLy students with disabilities, hence facilitating the communication with their School/Faculty/Institute.

    Who is concerned?

    • Students who already benefit from a support and/or academic accommodations during their scholarship.


    • Students who never ask for a support and face difficulties that have consequences during their studies: cognitive/mental/physical impairments, “dys” conditions, physical deficiencies, health conditions etc.


    • Students who face a temporary disability: factures, immobilizations etc.


    Compensations are not systematic. You have to ask for a support to obtain it. Every year, your request will by study during a meeting.

    Special arrangements during your studies and/or your exams can be provided depending on your disability and evolve during your time at the UCLy.
