AMU Prep' Days conferences

To help its international students settle in France, the university organizes webinars to help them prepare for their arrival. These pre-entry meetings give students the opportunity to begin their administrative procedures in a calm and methodical manner.

AMU Prep'Days: the essential pre-school event

Every year, just before the summer break, admitted international students make their final choice of university to begin their studies. This is also the time when they begin their first administrative steps.
VISA application, finding accommodation, banking information... So many aspects that are difficult to understand, especially from a distance.

That's why Aix-Marseille Université is committed to helping its admitted students through all the steps they need to take, thanks to a series of thematic online conferences.
