As part of its commitment to society, ESCI-UPF’s Inclusion Office works to ensure that all students can develop their potential by valuing educational diversity and guaranteeing the rights of high-performance athletes and people with disabilities or at risk of socioeconomic exclusion.
At ESCI-UPF we understand inclusion in terms of universal accessibility, as a key condition for promoting people’s autonomy based on equality and non-discrimination. Not only do we ensure that all our services, activities and spaces are physically accessible, we also guarantee that all members of the university community can play their part under the same conditions. Our aim is to safeguard all students’ rights to university access, course progression and employment options.
The Inclusion Office welcomes and supports students with special educational needs from the moment they arrive at the school. Any student can apply for support by submitting proof of their special educational needs. They will receive guidance throughout their time at university and the school will make any necessary adaptations to the course programme to offer them the required support and resources.

Follow-up meetings are held with students every term to review their academic progress.
The ESCI-UPF Inclusion Office provides support to students with special educational needs who as a result of illness or disability request additional resources or support to follow their course.
n keeping with the Covid-19 support put in place by UPF, ESCI-UPF has added the following points to its Inclusion Plan:
Any students who are admitted to hospital should email their details to their tutor (or ask a family member to do so) at the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org. The head of the ESCI-UPF Inclusion Office will inform the head of Covid-19 affairs at the school.
The Inclusion Office will carefully monitor each case until the student in question has fully recovered and resumed their academic activity at the university.
Any students who require psychological support can call the free anonymous external helpline run by Fundación Salud y Persona on 900 494 279 (access code: ESCI500).
