An International Partnership Diploma (IPD) covers different types of collaboration between Aix-Marseille Université and one or more foreign institutions with a view to awarding a double or multiple degree(s), or a joint degree, or the relocation of an Aix-Marseille Université course within a partner institution.

These programs allow Aix-Marseille Université students to study in one or more foreign universities, for one or more semesters, continuously or in installments. At the end of their training, students obtain both the Aix-Marseille Université diploma and the diploma(s) of the partner university(ies) (case of double, triple and multiple diplomas).

WAVES acronym for "Waves, Acoustics, Vibrations, Engineering and Sound" is an international Erasmus Mundus Master's degree in acoustic engineering. Its main objective is toprovide students with the scientific knowledge and skills needed to solve acoustic problems in industrial and academic settings, as well as in the emerging job market.


FUSION-EP Magnetic Confinement Fusion (MCF) is a field that aims to establish a massive sustainable, carbon-free energy production pathway within a few decades. The FUSION-EP program, created in 2006, aims to train the next generations of FCM physicists and engineers.

Aix-Marseille Université has the status of partner university for degrees in 3 other Erasmus Mundus International programs:

NOHA is a multidisciplinary postgraduate program in international humanitarian actionoffering high-quality academic instruction and professional skills for personnel who are destined to operate in the field, or at least in an international context.

In the case of a joint degree, students are awarded a single parchment bearing the seal of each partner institution and signed by the legal representative of each partner institution.

In addition, Aix-Marseille Université courses may be delocalized in a partner institution located in a foreign country.  The training is identical to that provided by Aix-Marseille Université and developed in close collaboration with Aix-Marseille Université concerning the implementation, organization and monitoring of the training.

The training is provided by Aix-Marseille Université.
