Logo actu Aix-Marseille Université et partenaires

Establishment of an emergency fund with the Region Sud and regional universities for the repatriation of students from the region stranded abroad.

Five hundred students from the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region are still abroad for study or internship reasons and unfortunately cannot return home.

Mobilised and concerned by this situation, Aix-Marseille Université reached an agreement with the President of the Region Sud and the three other presidents of the region's universities (the University of Toulon, the University of Avignon and the University of the Côte d'Azur), in order to facilitate and finance, with dedicated emergency fund, the repatriation of those students who wish to do so. This exceptional scheme provides for financial aid of 500 euros for each student wishing to be repatriated.

The regional COVID-19 unit for youth and higher education will be in charge of the operational follow-up of this scheme.
