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.

Scoping elements for the first two weeks of January 2022

Following the increase of COVID-19 cases in the university and the deterioration of the sanitary situation, we are forced, once again, to take measures to limit the proliferation of the virus, and hope to return to the situation we have known since the beginning of the academic year 2021 as soon as possible. We prefer to anticipate this situation rather than wait for potential new information during the Christmas break. Thus, for the weeks of January 3 and 10, 2022, the instructions are as follows for all university courses except for students in Medicine, Maieutics, Odontology, Pharmacy, Kinesitherapy from the second year of study and doctoral students (except for new government information)
