IMT-BS is committed to equal opportunity and inclusive and equitable education


The School offers students with disabilities or whose health condition requires specific arrangements to continue their studies by providing them with personalized guidance and an adaptation of the teaching methods and rhythms if necessary. The presence of a full-time nurse on campus allows for personalized care.

Candidates with disabilities applying for the Bachelor and MIM program may be eligible for special arrangements when taking the competitive entrance exams. We invite you to send your request to the test banks of the concerned entrance exams. For the other programs, please contact our disability advisors.

Upon registration, fill out the “Declaration of disability and/or request for pedagogical adaptation” and send it to the disability advisors at: handicap@imt-bs.eu

The “Pedagogical arrangement procedure” sheet will give you all the information you need on the topic.

You can benefit from financial aid during your studies and in the implementation of specific adaptations related to your disability. For more information, please contact the disability advisor at: handicap@imt-bs.eu

Since 2011, our campus has been equipped with infrastructures in compliance with accessibility standards, allowing people with disabilities to move freely within the campus. Institut Mines-Telecom Business School regularly renovates its premises to provide disabled students with the most appropriate facilities.

Erasmus+ and disabilities

Politique sociale IMT-BS: Erasmus+

The democratization of the Erasmus+ program is one of the objectives for the period 2014-2020. Erasmus+ aims to promote equity and inclusion by facilitating “access for participants from disadvantaged backgrounds and with fewer possibilities than their peers, when the situation of these people limits or prevents their participation in transnational activities.”

Socio-economic barriers, but also disability or health problems are among the factors limiting the mobility of these people:

  • Disability (i.e., participants with special needs): people with mental (intellectual, cognitive, or learning difficulties), physical, sensorial, or other disabilities;
  • Health issues: students with chronic health problems, serious illnesses or psychiatric diseases.

Erasmus+ allocates a specific amount of funding to cover the additional costs directly related to disabled participants and their accompanying persons. The program also provides additional funds to enable participants to have access to appropriate technical and educational supports.

All costs directly incurred by the participant’s disability and by any accompanying person are covered by the program, including travel and living expenses of the accompanying person.

In order to obtain coverage of additional expenses, the students must contact the Department for International Relations and Development (DRDI) at least one month before departure: outgoing@imt-bs.eu
