In fact, to provide young people with disabilities access to training as engineers with the same requirements and the same ambition for their studies and future employment is one of the establishment's priorities.

Welcoming the disabled student-engineer

INSA Lyon has a disabled student service that is part of the first cycle administration department. It runs a multidisciplinary team: teaching staff, doctor, nurses, psychologists, residence partners, restaurant partners.

This service facilitates the adaptations required to meet the specific needs of each student.

for learning:

  • course adaptation
  • adaptation of work stations (provision of suitable software,...)
  • adaptation of premises
  • human and technical assistance (note taking, guidance…)

for campus life:

  • accessible and adapted residences and restaurant facilities.

In addition, this service develops partnerships with "Lyon University" PRES, MDPH (Departmental Centre for Disabled People) and certain specialist associations. It also concerns the temporary handicaps (accident, sprains) during the schooling.

INSA Lyon mobilises all its actors.

Throughout the year INSA Lyon carries out actions to promote awareness and education among students, teaching staff and all staff so that disability becomes everyone's business. 

Students are involved in raising awareness.

In the context of the national Handimanagement project, INSA Lyon's Handizgoud students' association organizes an awareness week each year concerning the problems of the professional integration of disabled people.

Make INSA Lyon aware of your situation so that the adaptations required can be planned for

  • In INSA's application procedure, it is important you make your needs known so that you can be provided with the appropriate service and to make it easier for specific adaptations to be put in place.
