We currently offer a range of services to meet the needs of our students.

SPECIAL EDUCATIONAL NEEDS (SUP-ISU)
At IS University, offering equal learning opportunities to its students takes top priority.
Providing the necessary means for students to effectively express their knowledge is fundamental to our understanding of diversity.
With this aim in mind, our University offers a series of special adaptations for students with SEN (Special Educational Needs), which are defined as special conditions that may hinder a student’s learning and challenge his or her academic achievement. These types of special learning conditions must be both certified by qualified professionals and properly documented in official reports. Similarly, the diagnosis needs to be supported by objective and standardized test results. Any student who wishes to benefit from such adaptations should provide the University with the corresponding report issued by a qualified professional in the field. The information that is provided is handled confidentially and will be filed exclusively for the intended purposes, only.
In order to initiate the request for academic adaptations, students are asked to fill out a questionnaire upon their acceptance to IS University. Our department of SEN evaluates the submitted documentation, and provisionally issues a proposal of academic adaptations. This proposal will only be formalized after a personal interview with our Special Educational Needs Coordinator at the start of the academic year.
MENTAL HEALTH SERIES
We offer a yearly series of workshops and talks by experts and professionals, addressing mental health topics that are relevant to students’ university life. These are open to all interested students.
ISU GUIDED MEDITATION & YOGA
We offer weekly guided meditation and yoga sessions. These sessions require no prior experience or preparation, offering students the opportunity to discover tools and techniques that will help them manage stress levels.
Breathing techniques, mindfulness practices, and guided imagery are employed to reduce mental chatter and confront challenges both calmly and proactively.
Through both physical and mental exercises aimed at uniting body and mind, our certified instructors help students to balance their physical needs with the mental demands of academic life.
