International cooperation

Aix-Marseille University (AMU) is determined to pursue a dynamic and proactive international policy, and has established an International Relations Office with a mission to promote the European and international dimension of AMU’s teaching and research activities.

Every year our university welcomes about 10,000 international students, 1000 of which are taking part in exchange programmes.

The International Relations Office is there to guide students during their international mobility within the framework of an exchange programme between Aix-Marseille University and a partner university.


Aix-Marseille University is rich with a network of world-wide partners with about 300 agreements, apart from Erasmus+, concluded with partners in Europe, North America, South America, Africa, Asia and Australia.

Inter-university international cooperation agreements

The International Relations Office (DRI) is in charge of the implementation and monitoring of inter-university and international cooperation agreements.

Inter-university agreements are administrative acts that indicate the desire for cooperation between a foreign establishment and AMU. It is signed by the two heads of the establishments (for our university, exclusively by the President) for a maximum duration of 5 years without tacit renewal.
