AMU Prep' Days conferences

Illustration AMU PREP DAYS

Concerned about the installation of its international students in France, the University organizes preparation conferences in video. This pre-reentry event offers students the opportunity to begin their administrative procedures in a serene manner.

AMU Prep'Days: the must-attend pre-school event

Every year in May, admitted international students choose the university to which they wish to continue their studies. This is also the time when they begin their first administrative steps.
Applying for a VISA, finding housing, finding out about banking institutions... All of these aspects can quickly become complex to understand, and even more so at a distance.

This is why Aix-Marseille University is committed to helping its admitted students throughout this process and to enabling them to methodically understand all the steps they will have to take thanks to a series of thematic conferences.
