Student services and inclusion

The IUSS (University School for Advanced Studies) of Pavia aims to ensure, in accordance with its Statute and Code of Ethics, equal opportunities and full participation of all students in the institutional activities of the School. To this end, it organizes its educational, support, and guidance services to make university study effective and fruitful, providing equal opportunities for attendance and access to lectures, labs, libraries, and all university facilities.

In particular, the IUSS of Pavia collaborates with AIAS ETS Milano, which, through the personal projects service, can offer specialized services for individualized educational planning for students with disabilities and/or specific learning disorders, thanks to its consolidated experience.

The nature of the services may vary depending on the type of disability and/or specific learning difficulty of the student involved, with the aim of supporting the student in achieving their educational goals and at the same time promoting the development of the individual's autonomy and study skills.

The services offered may include, for example:

  • Attendance at lectures and note-taking.
  • Retrieval, preparation, and organization of educational materials.
  • Assistance during exam sessions.
  • Support for thesis writing.
  • Assistance in the use of computers and other compensatory tools.
  • Support for learning the English language.

The beneficiaries of these services, upon presentation of appropriate medical certification, may include:

  • Students with disabilities and/or Specific Learning Disorders (SLD) enrolled in the School.
  • Candidates with disabilities and/or SLD participating in admission tests for Regular Courses, Doctoral Courses, or other courses included in the School's educational offer.
  • Foreign students with disabilities and/or SLD enrolled in international mobility programs temporarily present at the School.
  • Professors and researchers of the School, whether regular, associate, or contract.
  • Members of the technical-administrative staff.

Access to the service involves the Orientation, Student Services, and Placement Unit. Upon receiving a request for assistance activation from a student, the unit schedules a welcome meeting with the individual. The purpose of the meeting is to understand and guide the individual's needs based on the analysis of the presented certification. At the end of the meeting, a personalized document will be developed, containing a list of compensatory tools and other possible aids that the student can access.
