Why leave?

A study stay abroad is undoubtedly an asset for your CV and your future professional career.
This mobility allows you to broaden your horizons and confront another reality by approaching your discipline from a different angle. A mobility abroad is therefore a life experience that goes beyond the strict academic framework.
This project will not only allow you to improve your command of a foreign language but also to acquire real intercultural competence.

Where to go?

Aix-Marseille Université has developed numerous agreements with international partners that offer students the possibility of study abroad mobility.
Several criteria can guide your choice of a foreign university: the courses offered, your affinity for a country, your professional project, your language skills...

How to apply?

If you have found a destination (or several) that interests you and for which you are eligible, you should :

  • Contact your International Relations pedagogical advisor, who will advise and support you in defining your mobility project.
  • Contact your international mobility manager who will detail the application procedure

In order to compile your application , you will be asked to complete the following form:

  • your university transcripts
  • a CV
  • a cover letter explaining your mobility project and your choice of destinations
  • the list of courses chosen for each destination: this draft study contract must be validated by the person in charge of the program or your training at Aix-Marseille Université. It will guarantee you the recognition of your course of study abroad on your return from your mobility.

Some destinations require additional documents: please refer to the detailed indications for each programme in the"Eligibility and applications" section.

If you are preselected, you may be asked to complete another application for the partner university in which you wish to study.

The final selection is made by the host university, which will send you a confirmation letter. This letter is the only way to accept your mobility and allow you to continue your studies (transport, accommodation, etc.).
