Maternity protection

Maternity – Adapted study plan

A pregnant student may wonder how she can reconcile studying and maternity. There are several possibilities. Please refer to the Student Services desk for advice on your personal circumstances.

Maternity protection

Pregnancy and maternity protection is of major concern to EPFL and all necessary measures will be taken if it is presumed that the mother or child’s health may be at risk, as per the Act on Maternity Protection (ref 822.111.52).

If you are pregnant please contact the Safety, Prevention and Health Domain (DSPS) as soon as possible so that any necessary protective measures can be rapidly taken as the initial months are the most critical.

Your contact with the DSPS is covered by official secrecy.
