Its aim is to promote the integration of young people with disabilities in the university world.
In 2011, the ONCE Foundation, the REPSOL Foundation and the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport, within the framework of the Programme for Strengthening the Campus of International Excellence Programme, launched an educational awareness-raising initiative on university campuses: the "Inclusive Campuses, Campuses without Limits" Programme.
This initiative encourages students with disabilities who have completed the 4th year of ESO or who are studying at Baccalaureate or Intermediate Vocational Training level, to continue their education towards university and raises awareness of the needs and inclusion of these students in the university environment.
For a week, participants are immersed in university life, carrying out academic activities in the different faculties, as well as cultural and sporting activities. The participants of the Inclusive Campus 2018 have visited Tecnun, where they have known, from the hand of the Promotion Service of the School, the particularities of the Engineering studies.
The aim of this campus is to facilitate the inclusion of young people with disabilities in the university world and for this purpose they have had the collaboration of students from the University itself who show them the classrooms, laboratories and workshops in which they carry out their academic studies.
