Living and study conditions

Enquete academique 2016 conditions de vie etudiante

The fourth aspect of the OVE's missions is the conditions of study and student life, which provides an overview of student practices: participation in campus life, use of the AMU offer in terms of culture, sport, community life, and use of the various support systems for university entrance.

Survey of first weeks at L1 Science and ALLSH University in 2020/2021

For almost a year now, the entire AMU community has been in training and learning conditions that have been completely disrupted by the health crisis. Students are particularly affected and some of them find themselves in complex and difficult situations. This context has led AMU to immediately reinforce its support mechanisms and to create new ones in order to help students and limit as much as possible the effects of the crisis and its human, economic and social consequences for its students.

In order to measure the difficulties and determine priorities for action, a first survey was conducted in 2020. It allowed us to measure the level of precariousness of our students and to identify priority areas of work (see survey below). Subsequently, many spontaneous testimonies reinforced the political team's will to continue and accelerate the implementation of support systems (medical-psychological, social, technical, pedagogical), and surveys with the support of the Student Life Observatory (OVE). Thus, in November, a study of 4,000 students in Licence 1 was carried out, providing a snapshot of their living and study conditions, and making it possible to compare pre-COVID and current indicators.


Survey of Student Health Conditions in 2020

In March 2020, AMU launched a survey to identify the difficulties of students. Of the 52,846 students surveyed, 32,218 responded to the questionnaire (60.9% response rate).

21.4% of respondents (6,912 students) reported difficulties related to containment and the epidemic context.

Financial difficulties were the most frequently cited. Other types of difficulties were addressed by respondents:
- 44.1% of respondents reported difficulties related to a feeling of isolation or concern about the context
- 25.9% of respondents report difficulties related to their professional activity in parallel with their studies.
- 1.5% of respondents report difficulties in obtaining supplies (food)

This survey also made it possible to set up a telephone follow-up of students who wished to be followed up by the AMU services (SIUMPS, BVE, Mission handicap).


L1 ALLSH back-to-school survey in2018-2019

During the 2018-2019 academic year, the UFR ALLSHconducted a survey to evaluate the reception arrangements forL1 students.

Collection of opinions on Parcoursup by thestudents of Licence 1 ALLSH in 2018-2019

The UFR ALLSH wished to conduct a survey on the use of Parcoursup among L1 students with a double objective:

  1. to evaluate the use of the platform at the end of itsfirst year of use in 2018 by the students in their final year of high school,
  2. identify areas for improvement andoptimise the entire system for registering L1s in ALLSHthrough the Parcoursup platform.


2016 Academic Survey on Student Living Conditions

AMU participates in partnership with the University of Avignon, the Rectorate of Aix Marseille, the CROUS of Aix Marseille and the Urban Planning Agencies of Marseille, Aix-en-Provence and Avignon in the implementation of an academic survey on student life in higher education.

The academic survey took place in February 2016 and questioned students online about their living and study conditions.
This survey was completed in spring 2016 by the sixth edition of the triennial survey of the National OVE, which interviewed a sample of AMU students.


AMU students' sports practices in 2012/2013

The survey made it possible to draw up an inventory of students' sports practices, both within AMU and outside AMU, and to identify their degree of satisfaction with the range of sports on offer at AMU. The survey also looked at students who do not practise any sport in order to find out their expectations or the reasons preventing them from doing so. More than three thousand students took part in the survey.
