Even today, there is still a lack of students with disabilities going abroad in the course of their studies. French Authorities have therefore asked la Conférence des Grandes Ecoles, French for “conference of Grandes Ecoles”(CGE),  to make a report about the international mobility of students with disabilities.  

    For that reason, the aim of this survey is to analyze the challenges faced by students with disabilities during their international mobility (academic stay, internship and placement). Secondly, the aim of this survey is to make proposals in order to remedy difficulties related to disability. 

    Since 2017, 3 French associations (la CGE, la FÉDÉEH et Unirh Thransition) have been advocating for an International Status of Disabled student (SIESH). In 2018, this status was presented to UN during the contribution to the Universal Periodic Review of France. It was also presented to various national bodies and diplomatic representations of several countries. This mission entrusted by the French government will enable to propose solutions to welcome disabled international students in France and will promote the international mobility of French students with disabilities.  

    Thank you for your time, it will only take you 15 minutes. Your answers are valuable and decisive for the pursuit of these goals. Your input will be acknowledged and quoted. Most of the questions do not require an answer, feel free to move on to the next one. The data collected through this survey will not be used for any commercial purposes. 

    According to article 1 of the international Convention on the Rights of persons with disabilities "Persons with disabilities include those who have long-term physical, mental, intellectual or sensory impairments which in interaction with various barriers may hinder their full and effective participation in society on an equal basis with others ".

    A disability within the meaning of the French law of February 11th 2005 (n°2005-102) is defined as "any limitation of activity or restriction of social participation suffered by a person in his/her environment due to a significant, lasting or definitive impairment of one or more physical, sensory, mental, cognitive or psychological functions, a multiple disability or a disabling health problem".
