Several information and prevention initiatives have been launched by the health referent:

  • Annual Health Day with the CPAM (the organisation that manages the healthcare expenses in France)
  • Partnership with NightLine to promote student self-help around mental health issues
  • Addictology awareness campaigns
  • PSC1 training for our student associations

Combating sexual and gender -based violence

Devinci Higher Education is also committed to the fight against sexual and gender-based violence.

A system of prevention, reporting to an external platform and handling of situations has been put in place to enable students to report, be listened to and supported in the event of sexual and gender-based violence, and for the school to be able to sanction proven cases.

Welcoming students with disabilities

De Vinci Higher Education schools are committed to ensuring the inclusion and success of students with disabilities, and to accompanying and supporting them as they pursue their studies and develop their student lives. The “Service Handicap Etudiants” (Office for Students with disability services) is responsible for supporting students with disabilities and managing disability awareness initiatives within the institution.

Since the 2005 french law, disability has been defined as any limitation of activity or restriction of participation in society experienced by a person in his or her environment due to a substantial, lasting or permanent impairment of one or more physical, sensory, mental, cognitive or psychic functions, a multiple handicap or a disabling health disorder.

The “Service Handicap Etudiants” can help you :

  • benefit from study and examination accommodations to compensate for your disability (teaching arrangements, note-taking or student tutoring,  exam secretarial services, extra time, loan of adapted equipment, other services…)
  • create a file based on your needs, not on the type of disability you have
  • receive individualized, personalized support (confidential interviews) throughout the year, taking into account your entire situation (housing, transport, financial conditions, etc.)
  • promote your independence
  • renew your accommodation every year (or during the academic year if necessary)

You can request support from the “Service Handicap Étudiants” before the start of the academic year, or during the current academic year if your situation changes, or if an event occurs that puts you in a situation of disability.
