COVID-19 - Student FAQs

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.

1. AMU 2020-2021: an atypical start to the new school year

As announced in July, the start of the new school year took place face-to-face for all students in an exceptional context and with a certain amount of tension at the pedagogical level.

Since then, the circulation of the virus has been reactivated this summer, particularly in our region.

In order to maintain pedagogical conditions favouring the success of the students while preserving the health of each one, the components have imagined scenarios allowing them to ensure their training at a distance, in face-to-face or in hybrid mode, or even by postponing the beginning of the school year, in order to adapt to this constantly evolving and unusual situation.

You will find below the dates of the new academic year by site and by component.
Please note that some dates are subject to change. We advise you to consult your component's website and/or contact your school for any questions you may have.

You can also stay informed via the mobile application Inst'AMU, which can be downloaded to your mobile phone on Google Play or the Apple Store.

2. Wearing a mask is mandatory and general health instructions

Wearing a barrier mask is now compulsory for everyone, both inside our sites and in the outdoor areas, as long as at least two people are in contact with each other.
This is a national framework to which we must absolutely subscribe.

Attention, the wearing of the mask does not replace the application of other barrier gestures: regular hand washing with soap or hydroalcoholic gel, respect for social distancing, respect for the direction of traffic, regular ventilation of enclosed spaces...

You will find on line the sanitary measures which are necessary for everyone.

Be careful, these measures do not stop at the campus door.
