EPF has made diversity a core part of its actions towards students and has an officer in charge of the school's disability policy.

THE DISABILITY OFFICER'S WORK AT EPF:

  • Advise, support, receive and counsel students with disabilities throughout their curriculum.
  • Welcome students at the school, evaluate their needs and make the school accessible ir order to guarantee that they have an equal chance to success at the school.
  • Advise students as they choose internships and provide them career guidance,
  • Set up technical compensation methods by purchasing special individual equipment (computers, software, magnifying glasses, etc.)...
  • Work in close connection with organisations and bodies that work to foster the inclusion of students with disabilities in higher education (such as: Conférence des Grandes Ecoles and Union des Grandes Ecoles Indépendantes, Fédération Étudiante pour une Dynamique Études, Emploi avec un Handicap) to share experiences and best practices.
