Study at a foreign university

départ étudiants à l'international


If you have questions about your mobility, consult the questions and answers below.

  • Before choosing a university

    • How can I find a partner university that offers courses suited to my background?

    Consult the list of AMU's international partners

    Consult the list of FEG partners

    • Can I go on a work-study mobility program?

    If you're on a work-study program, you can go on a mobility trip abroad for a shorter stay if necessary (during a period devoted to your studies), but for less than 30 credits.

    • Why do I need to check the compatibility of university calendars?

    Some universities have staggered academic calendars: Germany and Austria (S1 starts in mid-October), Southern Hemisphere (S1 starts in July/August). In Italy and Spain, exams are usually held in January, so it's often easier to leave for these destinations for a full year or for S2.

    • How do I choose my university courses?

    First of all, you need to choose the FEG course for which you want to go on a mobility trip. Then, on the FEG website, you'll find a list of the courses offered in that program, and you can search for equivalent courses (semester or full-year) on the websites of our partner universities. The aim is to obtain the same skills in the host university as if you had stayed at the FEG.

    • What happens if I haven't validated my credits?

    Some foreign courses don't have a make-up session, so make sure you find out beforehand.

    Who should I contact to move my project forward?

    For administrative questions, contact Chloé Planeau or Caroline Laux - (see bottom of page). For pedagogical questions, contact the person in charge of pedagogy (to find his/her name, go to the "Formation" page on the FEG website).

  • Financing

    • What kind of grants are available?

    Depending on the destination you choose (Europe or outside Europe), various grants are available and can be combined. More information on the AMU mobility page, or contact International Relations.

    • How long do I have to be away to qualify for a grant?

    You must be away for at least 2 months to be eligible for a mobility grant.

    • Do I need to have a certain amount of money in my current account to be able to go away?

    Yes, for 2 reasons:

    - scholarships are paid out later

    - to obtain certain visas, you need to have a certain amount of money available in your bank account (e.g. Canada...) >> see the website of the embassy of the target country.

    • What if I don't have the required amount?

    You can take out a student loan with a bank.

    • Can scholarships be combined?

    Région Sud grants (PRAME-stage and Aide à la mobilité internationale - études) cannot be combined with other grants for international mobility.

    The MESRI AMI grant can be combined with the Erasmus+ grant and the PMS grant.

    Erasmus+ and PMS grants can be combined up to a maximum of 700 euros per month.

    • How long does it take from application to grant?

    The time between application and receipt of the grant varies, but in some cases it can take several months. It can therefore happen that students receive their scholarship at the end of their semester abroad. It is therefore essential to anticipate this delay and ensure that you have sufficient funds to cover the costs of the first few months of study abroad.

    • Can I benefit from university accommodation during my studies abroad?

    Not all destinations abroad offer university accommodation, so please check beforehand using the housing platform of your target university.

    • Can I get an Erasmus grant if I've already been on an Erasmus program in previous years?

    You can receive an Erasmus grant for 2 semesters in the Bachelor's program and 2 semesters in the Master's program.

  • Preparing for your trip

    • Do I need a passport to consider mobility within Europe? What about outside Europe?

    For trips outside Europe (including the UK), the passport must be valid for 6 months after the planned date of return to France. More information on the administrative documents you need to prepare for departure is available on the course calendar.

    • Is there a network of former mobility students in my target destination?

    Yes, please get in touch with the course director or the IR department.

    • If I'm not a European citizen, who do I contact to obtain a visa for this mobility program?

    Contact the Marseille Prefecture.

  • Language requirements

    • How can I find out what level of foreign language is required at the destination university?

    Consult the country sheets for AMU or FEG applications (5th column).

    • How can I find out my language level?

    Contact the language teacher concerned.

    • If the language of the host country is not English, do I need to have some knowledge of that language?

    This will depend on the language of the targeted course. In some countries, notions of other languages are sometimes required to be able to travel. For example, in Korea, you need to have some knowledge of Korean for your application to be accepted. Please contact the IR of your component.

    • Is a letter from my language teacher enough to prove my level?

    No, not for destinations outside Europe. Check the information on the university website.


  • Be able to spend a semester or a year studying at a partner institution abroad (in or outside Europe)
  • Remain enrolled at AMU (even if you are leaving for a full year) and pay only AMU registration fees.
  • Receive support and guidance from AMU and your host institution
  • Benefit from financial support for your international mobility project


  • Study trips

    The Faculty of Economics and Management offers you the chance to study abroad for a semester or two, thanks to its many partners and exchange programs.

    You can study in S1, S2 or both semesters.

    An international study period offers many advantages:

    • you'll improve your command of the language of the country where you're going, as you'll be completely immersed!
    • You'll discover or develop your knowledge of a new country and its culture, and maybe even come back for more, because you'll have forged new bonds! Learning about a new culture will enable you to think differently, differently...
    • you'll gain in autonomy and maturity. You'll be able to put your adaptability skills to work, far from your family cocoon, discovering personal resources you didn't know you had, and developing your interpersonal skills!
    • you'll open up new opportunities for professional integration, as you'll develop skills that are essential for success 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!
  • Internships

    If you want to do an internship abroad, you first need to find your internship, as we don't have a dedicated service for this.

    Only once you've found your internship and agreed the dates and subject with your employer can you generate an internship agreement on Ipro via your ENT and choose the option of editing 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 that they be able to contact you at all times in the event of force majeure (pandemic, war, etc.).

    To benefit from a scholarship, you must apply via at least 2 months before your departure.

    You MUST create a STAGE mobility file on the platform: https: //

    The procedure for payment of scholarships is the same as for study stays. Please refer to the How to? tab on this page.

    At the same time (2 months in advance), send an e-mail to and to your training manager to request your departure authorization from the Security and Defense Officer FSD.

    Please note that in view of the health situation, this authorization, which is essential to start your training course, will not reach you until one month before your departure.

  • Summer School

  • Taking a break

  • 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 into the Licence 3 IPBE program from an external institution),
    • Have validated 120 credits or have a minimum L2 level at the time of application.
    • Be mobile to a partner institution
    • Have obtained the signature of your academic supervisor for each study project,
    • Have completed the first semester of your application year,
    • Validate your application year,
    • Mobility dates 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.
    • Proof of the language level required by the partner (Toeic, Toefl or Ielts language certification). We strongly advise you to take an official language certificate. Most of the time, you'll be asked for it when you register with your host university. The host university has the right to refuse you if you do not provide official proof of your language level. TOEIC sessions can be organized at FEG. For further information, please contact your Bachelor's or Master's department.

    You must have your official proof of language level by the time you register with your host university, i.e. around 4 months before the start of your course.

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

    It's essential to know which course you want to go on.

    To prepare for your mobility, you need to know the program for the course you'll be taking (see the list of courses on the FEG website).

    The courses you choose at your host university should correspond (in terms of skills rather than titles) to those you would have chosen if you were doing your year at the FEG in France.

    Study projects allow you to match your skills with those of your mobility period.

    Only the people in charge of the course you wish to study are competent to establish the equivalence of courses between those of the FEG and those of your host university. It is they who will sign both your study plan when you apply for the mobility program and your Learning Agreement, which will formalize your choice of courses and your enrolment in them with the host university.

    To help you anticipate your expenses, please read our information sheets to help you plan your administrative procedures, budget, insurance, accommodation etc. ...

    • 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 mobility between 2 and 12 months. The calculation is made by the software from date to date, so if you miss a day, you'll get nothing. It's worth modifying the agreement to get 2 full months.

    • Remains enrolled at AMU
    • Does not pay tuition fees at the partner university

    Specific Erasmus + grant

    + 3 months study mobility (L3)

    + 3 months internship mobility (L3)

    And if the student goes on to do a Master's degree, he or she can again take part in a study or internship mobility program, or a combination of the 2.

    Do not exceed 12 months' mobility per study cycle (L/M/D). If you have already taken part in an Erasmus internship or study program during your cycle, DO NOT CHOOSE AN ERASMUS DESTINATION FOR YOUR APPLICATION. You will not be authorized to leave.

    When a student participates in the Erasmus + program:

    • They remain enrolled at AMU
    • They do not pay tuition fees at the partner university.
    • Please note that if your university exchange is part of the Erasmus+ program, you will have the opportunity to take a language test via the EU Academy platform.
