FAQ

Vous avez des questionnements au sujet de votre mobilité, consultez les questions et réponses ci-dessous

  • Avant de choisir l'université

    • Comment trouver l'université partenaire qui proposerait des cours adaptés à mon parcours ?

    Consulter la liste des partenaires internationaux d'AMU

    Consulter la liste des partenaires FEG

    • Est-ce que je peux partir en mobilité si je suis en alternance ?

    Si vous êtes en alternance, vous pouvez effectuer un séjour de mobilité à l’étranger en partant pour un séjour plus court si nécessaire (sur une période consacrée aux études) en cumulant moins de 30 crédits.

    • Pourquoi dois-je vérifier la compatibilité des calendriers universitaires ?

    Certaines universités ont des calendriers académiques décalés : Allemagne et Autriche (début du S1 mi-Octobre), Hémisphère Sud (début du S1 en Juillet/Août). Attention, en Italie et en Espagne les examens sont en général au mois de Janvier, il est souvent plus facile de partir pour ces destinations une année complète ou au S2.

    • Comment choisir ses cours dans les universités ?

    Il faut d'abord choisir la formation FEG pour laquelle vous voulez partir en mobilité. Ensuite, vous trouverez sur le site de la FEG la liste des cours dispensés dans cette formation et vous chercherez sur le site des universités partenaires les cours équivalents (au Semestre et à l'année). L'objectif étant d'obtenir les mêmes compétences dans l'université d'accueil que si vous étiez resté à la FEG.

    • Comment ça se passe si je n'ai pas validé mes crédits ?

    Certaines formations étrangères n'ont pas de cession de rattrapage, bien se renseigner avant.

    Qui dois-je contacter pour faire avancer mon projet ?

    Pour des questions relevant de l'administratif, contacter Céline Roubinowitz - celine.roubinowitz@univ-amu.fr ou Caroline Laux - caroline.laux@univ-amu.fr (cf; bas de page), pour des questions de l'ordre pédagogique contacter le responsable pédagogique (pour trouver son nom, rendez-vous sur la page Formation du cursus ciblé, sur le site de la FEG.

  • Financement

    • De quelles aides puis-je bénéficier ?

    Selon la destination choisie (Europe ou hors-Europe), différentes bourses sont possibles voire cumulables. Plus d'informations sur la page AMU dédiée à la mobilité, ou contacter les Relations internationales.

    • Combien de temps minimum dois-je partir pour prétendre à une bourse ?

    Vous devez partir minimum 2 mois pour pouvoir prétendre aux bourses de mobilité.

    • Faut-il avoir une somme disponible sur son compte courant pour partir ?

    Oui pour 2 raisons :
    -    les bourses sont versées plus tard
    -    l’obtention de certains visa nécessitent d’avoir une certaine somme disponible sur son compte en banque (ex Canada…) >> voir site de l’ambassade du pays ciblé.

    • Quelle solution ai-je si je n’ai pas cette somme requise ?

    Vous avez la possibilité de contracter un crédit étudiant dans une banque.

    • Est-ce que les bourses sont cumulables ?

    Les bourses de la Région Sud (PRAME-stage et Aide à la mobilité internationale – études) ne sont pas cumulables avec d’autres aides à la mobilité internationale.
    La bourse AMI du MESRI est cumulable avec la bourse Erasmus+ et la bourse PMS.
    Les bourses Erasmus+ et PMS sont cumulables dans la limite de 700 euros mensuels.

    • Quel délai y-a-t-il entre la demande et l'obtention de la bourse ?

    Le délai entre la demande et l’obtention de la bourse varie mais peut prendre plusieurs mois dans certains cas. Il arrive donc que l’étudiant perçoive sa bourse lors de la fin de son semestre à l’étranger. Par conséquent, il est indispensable d’anticiper ce délai et de prévoir un apport financier suffisant pour supporter les coûts des premiers mois d’études à l’étranger.

    • Est-ce que je peux bénéficier d’un logement universitaire durant ma mobilité ?

    Toutes les destinations à l’étranger ne proposent pas des logements universitaires, bien vérifier avant en utilisant la plateforme logement de l’Université ciblée.

    • Est-ce que je peux bénéficier d'une bourse Erasmus si je suis déjà parti avec Erasmus les années précédentes ?

    Vous pouvez avoir une bourse Erasmus pour 2 semestres pour le cycle de Licence et 2 semestres pour le cycle de Master.

  • Préparation du voyage

    • Dois-je avoir un passeport pour envisager une mobilité en Europe ? Et hors Europe ?    

    Pour du hors Europe (et le Royaume Uni en fait partie), le passeport doit être valide 6 mois après la date prévue de retour en France. Plus d'informations sur les documents administratifs à préparer pour le départ sur le calendrier du cours.

    • Y a-t-il un réseau d'anciens étudiants en mobilité dans ma destination ciblée ?  

    Oui, se rapprocher du responsable pédagogique ou du service RI

    • Si je ne suis pas ressortissant européen, à qui dois-je m’adresser pour obtenir un visa dans le cadre de cette mobilité ?     

    S’adresser à la Préfecture de Marseille.

  • Pré-requis en langues

    • Comment savoir le niveau de langue étrangère requis pour l'université de destination ?

    Consulter les fiches pays pour la candidature AMU  ou candidature FEG, (5ème colonne).

    • Comment puis-je connaître mon niveau de langue ?

    Rapprochez-vous de l’enseignant en langues concerné.

    • Si la langue du pays d’accueil n’est pas l’anglais, dois-je obligatoirement avoir des notions de cette langue ?

    Cela va dépendre de la langue des cours ciblés. Dans certains pays, des notions dans d’autres langues sont parfois requises pour pouvoir voyager. Par ex : en Corée, il faut avoir des notions en coréen pour que le dossier soit accepté. Se rapprocher du RI de la composante.

    • Est-ce qu'une lettre de mon professeur de langue suffit pour justifier mon niveau ?

    Non, pas pour les destinations hors Europe, il faut vérifier les indications sur le site de l'université.

TO GO ABROAD IS TO :

  • Be able to spend a semester or a year of study in a partner institution abroad (in Europe or outside Europe)
  • Remain enrolled at AMU (even if you go for a whole year) and therefore pay only AMU registration fees
  • Be accompanied and supervised by AMU and your host institution
  • Benefit from financial aid to carry out your international mobility project

....

  • Going on a study trip

    The Faculty of Economics and Management offers you the opportunity to pursue your studies abroad thanks to its many partners and exchange programs, for one or two semesters.

    You can study in S1, S2 or both semesters.

    An international study period brings you many advantages:

    • you will deepen your knowledge of the language of the country in which you are going, because you will be completely immersed!
    • You will discover or develop your knowledge of a new country, its culture and maybe you will come back because you will have made new connections! This learning of a new culture will allow you to think differently, differently...
    • You will gain in autonomy and maturity. You will use your ability to adapt, far from your family cocoon, you will discover personal resources that you did not know you had and you will develop your relational skills!
    • You will open up new opportunities for professional integration because you will develop essential skills to succeed in the professional world, such as adaptability, autonomy and open-mindedness in addition to mastering a new language and getting to know a new country!
  • Going on an internship

    If you want to do an internship abroad, you must first find your internship because we do not have a service dedicated to this.

    It is only once you have found your internship and agreed on the dates and subject with your employer that you can generate an internship agreement on Ipro via your ENT and choose the option to edit it in English.

    It is signed by your academic supervisor.

     

    The International Relations Department is only involved in your application for a grant and your departure authorization.

    However, you MUST COMPLETE YOUR MOBILITY APPLICATION. The FEG is responsible for you during your internship and the consular services require to be able to contact you at any time in case of force majeure (pandemic, war...)

     

    To receive a scholarship, you must apply via feg-ri@univ-amu.fr at least 2 months before your departure.

    You MUST create a STAGE mobility file on the platform : https://url.univ-amu.fr/portail_mobilites_sortantes_2022-23

    Concerning the scholardship, you have to follow the same step than for the exchange outcoming students.

     

    At the same time, you will have to send an email to feg-ri@univ-amu.fr to request your departure authorization from the FSD.

    Please note that due to the health situation, this authorization, which is essential to start your internship, will only be sent to you one month before your departure.

  • Going to Summer School

  • Going on a gap year

  • All students from L3 to M2: Application requirements

    • Be enrolled at Aix Marseille University, in the Faculty of Economics and Management (an exception is made for students accepted to the Licence 3 IPBE from an external institution),
    • Have validated 120 credits or have a minimum of L2 level at the time of application
    • To be mobile to a partner institution
    • Have obtained the signature of each study project by your academic supervisor,
    • Have validated the first semester of your application year,
    • Validate your application year,
    • The dates of your mobility must correspond to your curriculum. Check the dates of the academic calendars for EACH university you are applying to. This is why we ask you to indicate your mobility dates on your study plans. If they are not compatible with your training or your competition plans, for example, you should not choose this university. No exceptions will be made if you have to return to S2.
    • Be able to prove the language level required by the partner (Toeic, Toefl, Ielts type language certification). It is strongly advised to take an official language certificate. Most of the time, you will be asked for it when you register at the host university. The host university has the right to refuse you if you do not officially prove your language level. TOEIC sessions can be organized at the FEG. You can get information from the school of Licences or of your Master.

    You must have your official proof of language level for the registration at the host university, about 4 months before the beginning of the courses

    • Submit a complete application file on the mobility platform (link in the "When to apply" tab) during the application periods indicated for each destination.
  • Preparing your mobility

    You must know for which training you want to go.

    In order to prepare for your mobility, you must know the program of the program for which you will be leaving (see the list of courses on the FEG website).

    The courses chosen in the host university must correspond (in competence rather than in title) with those you would have chosen if you were doing your year at the FEG in France.

    The study projects allow you to match the competences during your mobility period.

    Only the pedagogical managers of the program you want to study at are competent to establish the equivalence of the courses between those of the FEG and those of your host university. They will sign your study plan when you apply for the mobility program and your learning agreement which will formalize your choice of courses and your registration in them with the host university.

    To anticipate your expenses, please read our information sheets in order to better plan your administrative procedures, your budget, your insurance, your accommodation, etc.

  • Partner universities by country

  • Agreements and partnerships

    Among our partner institutions we distinguish two types of agreements:

    • Multidisciplinary AMU agreements: 1st wave of applications closing around December 15 of each year.

    They are managed and negotiated at the Aix Marseille University level and the negotiated places are therefore open to several or all AMU components. When you apply for a multidisciplinary agreement, you are competing with all the students of AMU.

    The CIVIS universities are part of the AMU agreements.

    • Agreements with the FEG: 2nd wave of applications closing around mid-March.

    They are managed and negotiated by the component (the Faculty of Economics and Management) and the negotiated places are reserved for the FEG. When you apply on a disciplinary agreement you are therefore in competition only with students from the FEG.

    The ERASMUS agreements are considered as FEG agreements.

From the beginning of November to about mid-December of each year for AMU agreements.

You will be able to make a maximum of 4 choices among the partner universities with AMU (see Where? tab)

ISEP will be choice 1 if you take it.

The mobility platform (Moveon) will allow you to rank your choices in order of preference. This will also be indicated on your study plan (see How? tab)

From the beginning of November to about mid-March of each year for the FEG agreements.

You will be able to make a maximum of 3 choices among the partner universities with the FEG (see Where? tab)

The mobility platform (Moveon) will allow you to rank your choices in order of preference. This will also be indicated on your study plan.

The campaigns are automatically closed at midnight on the evening of the deadline.

If a place is allocated to you during the mobility campaign for AMU destinations, you will not be able to apply for FEG destinations.

  • Documents to be prepared

    • Passport valid for 6 months after the return is mandatory for destinations outside Europe (please have it redone as soon as you apply) or CI for the others (note that the UK is not in Europe anymore);
    • Study plans signed by your academic supervisor (see documents to be filled in below). There will be one page per partner university, ALL signed and classified by order of preference. Without the signature of the person in charge of studies, your application for mobility is not valid,
    • CV (in French) even for repeated years,
    • Motivation letter (not one per destination but a global letter explaining your mobility project in French)
    • Transcripts: BAC + all the years until your application, even if you have repeated a year
    • Official language certificate (Toeic/Toefl/IELTS) for countries outside of Europe, for other countries, a certificate from your language teacher may suffice (unless otherwise indicated on the partner university's website).

    The requirements of the universities are in the country files of the tab "Where?

    ATTENTION, universities are more and more demanding for language levels because the lack of level durably engages the success of your mobility if you do not understand the courses.

    Your university average = Baccalaureate average + equivalent year Baccalaureate average + Baccalaureate average ..../ number of years considered

  • Financial aid

    ATTENTION:

    • THE PAYMENT OF THE SCHOLARSHIPS IS MADE VERY LATE IN RELATION TO YOUR ARRIVAL ON SITE. THE LATER THE DOCUMENTS ARE UPLOADED TO THE MOVEON MOBILITY PLATFORM, THE LATER YOUR PAYMENT WILL BE.

    • THE PROCEDURE IS DIFFERENT FOR THE 21/22 MOBILITIES THAN FOR 22/23

    PREPARE YOUR MOBILITY

    Scholarships: Eligibility criteria for all scholarships

    • The student must be registered at AMU (register before leaving)
    • Mobility must be an integral part of the curriculum
    • Must be enrolled in at least L2 at the time of application
    • SMS (studies): duration of mobility between 3 and 12 months
    • SMP (Practice / internship): duration of the mobility between 2 and 12 months. The calculation is made by the software from date to date, if you miss a day, you will not receive anything. It is worthwhile to modify the agreement to have 2 full months.

    During international exchanges, the student:

    • He remains registered at AMU
    • He/she does not pay the registration fees at the partner university

    Specific Erasmus + grant

    For example, a Bachelor's degree student can take part in different types of exchanges during his or her studies:

    6 months of study mobility (L2)

    + 3 months of study mobility (L3)

    + 3 months of internship mobility (L3)

    And if the student goes on to a Master's degree, he/she can again carry out a study mobility, an internship or a combination of both.

    Do not exceed 12 months of mobility per study cycle (L/M/D)

      When a student participates in the Erasmus + program:

      • He/she remains registered at AMU
      • He/she does not pay the registration fees at the partner university
      • They take the language test offered by the OLS platform before departure (when you are awarded the Erasmus grant). You receive a message directly from the Erasmus center before your departure date. You will receive the same test on the approximate return date that you put in the Mobility file, not before,
      • Your ERASMUS mobility contract must be signed by all parties before the mobility. It is sent by the DRI when the notification of the ERASMUS grant is received shortly before the mobility.

      It must be sent in hard copy with original signatures by registered mail to

      International Relations Department

      Faculty of Economics and Management

      14 avenue Jules Ferry

      13621 Aix-en-Provence FRANCE

      • It validates the courses taken abroad thanks to the Learning Agreement (LA) which must be signed before departure by your academic supervisor. Any modification of the contract must be accepted by all parties within 4 to 7 weeks after the beginning of each semester. The person who signs the LA for AMU is the person in charge of the program in which you are registered for your mobility. The latest version of the LA must be submitted on the mobility platform form (name to be defined),

      On the "stage 3" (name being changed for 22/23) of his stay on the mobility platform:

      During the mobility, the student must:

      • submit their travel documents (ASAP),
      • submit his arrival certificate signed by a representative of the host university (ASAP), for students leaving within the framework of Erasmus; and OUTSIDE Erasmus
      • submit the STUDY or INTERNSHIP Learning Agreement (Erasmus version required to receive the Erasmus grant) SIGNED BY ALL 3 PARTIES (the AMU academic director, the student and the host university),
      • if the LA is modified, it must be uploaded again after obtaining the signature of the academic supervisor

      IN STEP 3, REMEMBER TO GO TO THE TAB "SEND YOUR DOCUMENTS" AND SEND!

      [These steps condition the first payment of all scholarships.

      At the end of the mobility the student :

      • submits on the mobility platform (Step 3) his or her certificate of return,
      • the certificate of the real dates of mobility,
      • completes his/her post-mobility language evaluation on the OLS platform
      • completes the final student report online (you will receive an email from " replies-will-be-discarded@ec.europa.eu ". To avoid this email going to spam, we advise you to add it to your contacts);
      • submits his or her transcripts from the host university and sends them to his or her academic supervisor for transcription

      [These 3 steps are the condition for the payment of the balance of the grant and the end of the mobility.

      PMS grant

      The file of all the students who have validated their scholarship application(2022/23 - Post-nomination stage + 2022/23 - Mobility file constitution form / Closing 20 July 2022 ) on the mobility platform are automatically submitted to the PMS scholarship. However, there are very few elected candidates because it depends on the PMS budget allocated each year by AMU. The target countries are not known before the allocation of PMS grants.

      All these documents are to be uploaded to the Moveon mobility platform at stage 3 of their stay:

      Access to the study and internship stay 21/22 mobility platform: https://url.univ-amu.fr/portail_mobilites_sortantes_2021-22

      Access to the study and training period 22/23 mobility platform : https://url.univ-amu.fr/portail_mobilites_sortantes_2022-23

      ATTENTION

      [The gap year is not eligible to Erasmus+.

      NB: The gap year allows a student to suspend his/her studies for a period of 6 months to 1 year. The student can thus take advantage of it to :

      • gain professional experience in France or abroad;
      • take a course in another field.

      To apply for a gap year : La césure | Faculté d'Economie et de Gestion - AMU (univ-amu.fr)
