As part of its commitment to society, ESCI-UPF’s Inclusion Office works to ensure that all students can develop their potential by valuing educational diversity and guaranteeing the rights of high-performance athletes and people with disabilities or at risk of socioeconomic exclusion.
At ESCI-UPF we understand inclusion in terms of universal accessibility, as a key condition for promoting people’s autonomy based on equality and non-discrimination. Not only do we ensure that all our services, activities and spaces are physically accessible, we also guarantee that all members of the university community can play their part under the same conditions. Our aim is to safeguard all students’ rights to university access, course progression and employment options.
The Inclusion Office welcomes and supports students with special educational needs from the moment they arrive at the school. Any student can apply for support by submitting proof of their special educational needs. They will receive guidance throughout their time at university and the school will make any necessary adaptations to the course programme to offer them the required support and resources.
Follow-up meetings are held with students every term to review their academic progress.
