Deusto presents the first graduating class of its pioneering degree for people with intellectual disabilities

On 17th September, the Ceremonial Hall of the University of Deusto in Bilbao hosted the Diploma Award Ceremony of the 15 students of the first class of the “University Extension Diploma for Employment Training in Supported Employment Environments”. Designed, managed and taught by Deusto and the GAUDE Association, this is the first university degree in the Basque Autonomous Community that offers comprehensive training for employment and social and university inclusion of young people with intellectual disabilities aged between 18 and 30.

In this regard, the Diploma allows them to continue with their academic and vocational training to find a job that facilitates their transition to adult life, increasing their quality of life and employability and generating opportunities that enable a full, independent and satisfactory life project.

The Diploma is included within the branch of knowledge of Social and Legal Sciences of the Faculty of Psychology and Education (at the Bilbao Campus), and is structured in two academic years, each of them with 30 ECTS credits, and a total of 15 subjects.
