Disability Support

Any student with a disability or health condition of any type (physical, psychic, sensorial, or a disabling condition) and of any duration can, if he/she wants, benefit from services implemented by Inalco.

Inalco’s will is to welcome students with disabilities the best way possible and to provide support to them. The dedicated unit is aimed at everyone (those primarily affected, as well as parents of students with a disability or professors seeking information). Our main goal is to allow everyone the same access to classes and exams, and to ensure a smooth integration within our Institute.
If you benefit from a disability card, an adult disability allowance, or a recognition of a disabled worker status, you can contact the ‘Mission Handicap’ of the CROUS of Paris: a social worker will be at your service.
