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 University course within a partner institution.

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

Erasmus Mundus joint Masters

Among these programmes, the Erasmus Mundus Joint Masters are integrated international study programmes of excellence. The European Union finances them and provides funds for scholarships to be awarded through a competitive process to the best students in the world.

AMU participates in 7 Erasmus Mundus joint masters programmes of excellence, 4 of which it coordinates directly:

EUROPHOTONICS is an international Erasmus Mundus Master's programme offering a broad multidisciplinary training in photonics . Graduates will have broad competences in core subjects with specialization in different areas corresponding to the main applications of photonics in research and industry.

CHEMICAL NANO-ENGINEERING is an international Erasmus Mundus Master's program that offers abroad multidisciplinary training in the emerging field of nano-engineering with a strong specialization in chemistry and modeling of nano-objects. Graduates will have a dual competence, experimental and numerical, in the design, synthesis and applications of nano-systems.


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


FUSION-EP Magnetic Confinement Fusion (MCF) is a field that aims to establish a sustainable and carbon-free mass 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 University has the status of partner university for 3 other Erasmus Mundus international programmes:

NOHA is a multidisciplinary postgraduate programme in international humanitarian action offering high quality academic education and professional skills for personnel who are destined to operate in the field, or at least in an international context. This high quality practical education is designed to make students operational in complex environments (conflict, pre-conflict or post-conflict areas, humanitarian emergencies, natural disaster situations, political tensions, extreme poverty or health challenges).

EUROSUD is an Erasmus Mundus "South European Studies" Master's programme that brings together a network of six European partner universities, leading cultural organisations, think tanks and policy practitioners with unparalleled expertise and knowledge of the region. This unique multidisciplinary, flexible and integrated study programme facilitates cultural immersion through three periods of international mobility, a multidisciplinary approach that sits between regional studies and international affairs, and critical tools and transferable skills that enhance the employability of graduates.


EMLE is a European Master in Law and Economics (EMLE) which aims to teach students the main concepts, methods and techniques of economic analysis of law, to familiarise them with the "state of the art" and to enable them to understand and evaluate the differences and similarities between national legal systems from an economic perspective.

Other AMU International Partnership Degrees

Nine components of Aix-Marseille University offer around fifty degrees (bachelor's, master's and engineering degrees) in international partnership.

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

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