The Aix-Marseille University, also known by its abbreviation AMU is a public research university situated in Provence, southern France. Aix-Marseille University was founded in 1409 by petition of Louis II of Anjou.
The Aix-Marseille University as is know today is a result of the merge in 2012 of the University of the Mediterranean, the Paul Cézanne University and the University of Provence. This combination has lead to the creation of the youngest and largest French-speaking university in the world. Amu counts with more than 70,000 students every year.Show more
A rich program with several approaches to the economy and finance, with some bit of accounting.
There are a few great teachers, I actually have the honor to meet them.
But also there are some teachers who don’t know what are they talking about, but you can work your way around them as a student.
Just turn left on Schuman Street to catch a glimpse of the large campus along with the yellow and red trees.
Yes! This is Aix-Marseille university. A campus with old buildings that the faculty of law with its beautiful and classic architecture shines in its heart.
When you hear the name of the Aix-Marseille university, you may say to yourself that it must be an old and boring university. But, just look around, Fenouillères Library with its unique and modern architecture attracts the eyes of every passerby, books call you. How can it be a boring place?
It is no exaggeration to say that vitality is the main feature of the university. On an autumn evening, you can grab your coffee from the university restaurant and then head to the Faculty of Literature building. Do not be surprised, it’s right, this is the sound of the piano. Sit in the lobby armchairs and enjoy coffee and the sound of the piano. You can even sit and play the piano yourself after drinking so that the passion of the piano can calm down everyone .

In general I have a good memory of the uniqueness of Aix but the bureaucracy does not work very well. Good level of foreign languages. They should give more facilities to Erasmus or foreign students.View more
The University of Aix en Provence offers quality courses. I will improve the premises which are in very bad condition even if they were being renovated at the time. It's hard to park when you're a student.View more
I studied there for 4 years. The undergrad years were easier than the first year of my master’s. The problem with this university is the “theoretical” aspect: we don’t get to practice what we learn that much. And that is a major problem when applying for a training program or when trying to look for a job afterward. Some found it even harder to go into engineering programs due to our lack of lab work. I studied biology (for my bachelor) and then specialized in organic chemistry (for my master’s). I think the university could do much better concerning the scientific side of its program. Marseille is well known to have one of the best management and marketing programs but the scientific aspect is really not taken care of.
As for the city, it is “pleasant”. A little bit expensive for what it is but there’s a lot to do there.
