EPHEC promotes equal opportunities and aims at offering an inclusive study environment. Our institution therefore organises a support service to welcome students with special needs.

Support for students with special needs

Students who present a proven disability, a specific learning disability (e.g., dyslexia) or a disabling illness will be contacted by the Center for International Relations based on the information provided in the online registration form.

They should provide any documentary evidence in English in support of their request, in particular:

  • the decision of the home institution or public body responsible for the integration of people with special needs;
  • or a report drawn up by a specialist in the medical field or by a multidisciplinary team, dated less than a year before the request was made.

The support service will examine each request. All information transmitted by students is confidential. If applicable, students will receive an individualised support plan addressing their specific needs and detailing the organisation of reasonable adjustments.

Person of contact

For any questions or further information, students should not hesitate to contact Mr Frédéric SIMONIS (EPHEC Incoming Mobility Officer): f.simonis@ephec.be

Physical accessibility of the university campus

EPHEC is wheelchair friendly. Our campuses have the appropriate infrastructure to welcome students with special access needs:

Every day, the Brussels’ public transport network becomes more and more accessible to people with reduced mobility. Click here for more information or download the TRAVELLER'S GUIDE FOR PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES.

Support for students with mental, physical or health-related conditions

A free medical service is available to ensure the overall well-being of exchange students during their studies. With the strictest respect for medical secrecy and confidentiality, with or without an appointment, this free preventive medical consultation service is organised every Monday from 12.45 til 1.45 (room … ), starting in October.
