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.

The positive evolution of the health situation leads to the adaptation of some restrictive measures.
The curfew has been lifted and the systematic wearing of masks has been abolished, but it remains compulsory if physical distancing, in particular, is not possible: for example, in places gathering a large number of people or in queues.

The 50% capacity (seated public) is maintained until the start of the academic year in September 2021, in compliance with a strict sanitary protocol.

However, the start of the academic year in September 2021 should take place under normal conditions.

1. Update on internships

An internship can be carried out either face-to-face or remotely, depending on the situation of the host organization (company or laboratory/research unit).

  • If the mission entrusted to the trainee cannot be carried out remotely, the face-to-face internship can continue or be carried out, subject to compliance with the health instructions and measures in force by the host organization.
  • Otherwise, the transformation of the "face-to-face training course" into a"distance training course" or its interruption / postponement will have to be formalized by an amendment

This amendment can be made by electronic means or by scan (in accordance with articles 1366 and following of the civil code). However, an exchange of e-mails between the student trainee, the host organisation (at least the traineeship tutor) and the higher education institution (at least the teaching tutor) can validate the changes, pending the signature of an amendment.

Internships outside the European area are forbidden.
Internships within theEuropean area are authorized subject to theopinion of the SDF(to be obtained via the pedagogical secretariat of your course or your school), but are not recommended.
The DROM-COM are considered as outside Europe.
