Students with a specific profile (PEPS)


Since November 2011, UCLouvain has brought together under a single status students who, due to a disability, serious illness or high-level sporting or artistic activity, cannot engage in a university course without special arrangements. The purpose of PEPS status is to support and encourage them in a transparent and equitable way.

In 2014-15, the Decree on Higher Inclusive Education came into effect; it established the PEPS framework for students with a serious illness or disability.

Regulatory framework


PEPS status applications must be submitted to the vice-rector for student affairs in accordance with the deadlines and procedures established by the university.
