If you are active in sports at a high level, Aix-Marseille University allows you to reconcile your sports career with your higher education.

1. Athletes concerned

The awarding of NHS-AMU status is based on sporting achievements and training constraints. Students registered on the ministerial lists or belonging to a training centre or training centre of a professional club are eligible for SHN-AMU List 1 status.
Athletes who do not qualify for this status but who have a significant sporting record (national or inter-regional elite) and significant training constraints are eligible for SHN-AMU List 2 status.

2. Benefits of NHS-AMU status

SHN-AMU students will be able to benefit, according to the possibilities of each course, from pedagogical facilities:
- Specific organization of the timetable;
- Arrangements for exams;
- Adapted pedagogical devices;
- Tutoring;
These arrangements will be described in a pedagogical contract signed between the educational referent, the sports referent and the SHN-AMU student.
