Disability

AMGSM – IAE is a very favorable environment to students with disabilities thanks to its very personal services to our students and a high capacity to adapt to special needs. The personal accompaniment of the School is backed by a centrally organized and specialized disability service within Aix-Marseille Université.

AMU disability service 

Aix-Marseille University is committed to equality, diversity and promoting an inclusive teaching and learning environment for all. A national policy chart “Université – Handicap” has been signed by most French Universities in 2012. This chart sets very precise, high standard guidelines for Universities with regards to the integration of students in Higher Education Institutions.

The Aix-Marseille University central services (“Mission Handicap”) works in close relationship with specialized external, local organizations providing support such as ARPEJEH, URAPEDA, HANDITALENTS. AMU also coordinates actions with other stakeholders of the quality of students’ life in order to improve study conditions for students with disabilities, for example the CROUS for special accommodation and accessibility of the students’ restaurants.

Accessibility of the campus

The AMGSM-IAE campus is accessible to wheelchair users and people with mobility impairments. There is lift access to all floors of the building. The advantage for the students of the IAE being on a relatively small campus and entity means that all students, including students with special needs, very quickly get familiar with their study environment.

Accessibility of the courses/content

AMGSM-IAE adapts the content of the classes and the teaching method to the needs of the student (note taking, mentoring, transforming resources in accessible electronic format …) and makes examination arrangements.
