Welcoming students with disabilities or special needs

An assertive policy

  • The Disability Policy Framework 2023-25 has been approved by the Board of Governors. It was drawn up collectively by a working group made up of representatives of 8 departments and the disability coordinator (referent.handicap@ec-nantes.fr), who also monitor its implementation. Download here (in French - staff and student access only).
  • Every year for over 10 years, Centrale Nantes has offered 2 places on the Centrale-Supélec entrance exam to students with disabilities.
  • The organization of Centrale Nantes, and mainly the presence of a nurse on campus, provides for individual care. Contact is established from the beginning of the academic year between the nurse and any student with disabilities. 

Daily life on campus

  • All departments in contact with students and teachers are informed about the arrangements made for students with disabilities.
  • Students with disabilities have priority access to accommodation at the Max Schmitt residence.
