COVID-19 - FAQ Students

Today we are in a health crisis situation, in France and around the world. All of AMU's educational teams are working to ensure educational continuity in this context and to guarantee you the best possible access to training.

The health situation is not favourable to a resumption. A meeting with the DGESIP and the members of the CPU has postponed the date for the resumption of face-to-face classes for L1 students - and those with a digital divide - to the week of January 20, if health conditions permit.
And to February 8 for all the other classes. Thus, for our resumption modalities are the following:

  • Until 25 January for L1/DUT1/PEIP1 students and until 8 February for the other degrees, the system established before the holidays remains in force (lectures in amphitheatres and tutorials by distance learning, practical work possible in the classroom subject to authorisation, assessment of knowledge possible in the classroom).
  • Between 25 January and 8 February, for L1/DUT1/PEIP1 students, lectures will remain at a distance (except for the digital divide) for large groups of more than 150 students. The other courses and pedagogical activities can take place face-to-face, provided that the rules of distance learning are respected and that the student flow is reduced (half capacity).
  • If the health situation allows it, from February 8th for all students of all degrees, all the pedagogical activities can take place in a classical way in class, subject to respecting the rules of distancing and reducing the students' flow (principle of the half-capacity).

1. Point on the training courses

An internship can be carried out in person or by distance depending on the situation of the host organization (company or laboratory/research unit).

  • If the mission entrusted to the trainee cannot be carried out remotely, the face-to-face internship may continue or be carried out, subject to compliance with the health instructions and measures in force by the host organization.

If the student needs to travel between his/her home and the internship site, he/she should always bring his/her internship agreement, his/her identity card, as well as :

- proof of residence (receipt, electricity bill, etc.) for travel during the day (between 6am and 7pm) up to 10 km
- travel certificates (derogatory and professional) for travel beyond 10 km from home during the day (between 6am and 7pm) and during curfew (between 7pm and 6am) throughout metropolitan France.

  • Otherwise, the transformation of the "face-to-face course" into a"distance course" or its interruption / postponement will have to be formalised by a rider

This amendment can be made by electronic means or by scan (in accordance with articles 1366 and following of the civil code). However, an exchange of e-mails between the student trainee, the host organisation (at least the traineeship tutor) and the higher education institution (at least the teaching tutor) can validate the changes, pending the signature of an amendment.

Internships outside the European area are forbidden.
Internships within theEuropean area are authorized subject to theopinion of the SDF(to be obtained via the pedagogical secretariat of your course or your school), but are not recommended.
The DROM-COM are considered as outside Europe.

2. Mandatory wearing of the mask and general health instructions

Wearing a barrier mask is now compulsory for everyone, inside our sites as well as in outdoor areas when at least two people are in contact.
This is a national framework that we must absolutely adhere to.

Please note that wearing a mask does not replace the application of other barrier measures: regular hand washing with soap or hydroalcoholic gel, respect for social distance, respect for the direction of traffic, regular ventilation of enclosed areas, etc.

You will find online the sanitary measures that are necessary for everyone.

Please note that these measures do not stop at the campus door.
