European Capital of Culture 2013, Marseille has undertaken large-scale projects such as the new Museum of European and Mediterranean Civilisations – MuCEM (http://www.mucem.org/inauguration) officially opened in June 2013.
“The city has changed, the students have come back. That is a sign,” a major French weekly recently commented.
Studying in the sun, beside the sea, is certainly many students’ dream. You are lucky to be doing so. Now all you need to do is discover how good life is in this glorious city.
With some 50,000 students spread across three main campuses (Marseille Centre, Marseille Sud-Luminy, Marseille Nord-Étoile), Marseille is the largest university town in the Aix-Marseille Education Authority area.
Since January 2012, following the merger of its three existing universities, Marseille has been home to Aix-Marseille University (AMU), the largest in the French-speaking world.
The city also has engineering schools (including Polytech Marseille and the École Centrale Marseille), a management school, the Marseille-Mediterranean School of Art and Design (ESADMM), a National School of Architecture, the French Merchant Navy School (ENSM), a branch of the National School of Landscape Architecture (ENSP), without forgetting the many units for vocational technical training (the STS, to award a BTS), and preparatory classes for prestigious public and private higher education institutions.
Over and above the varied range of higher education available, Marseille is a dynamic city giving due place to its students. It has put a programme of monthly events in place called “Marseille celebrates its students” enabling you to benefit from free cultural, sporting and leisure events every month.
The furnished apartments are recently-built and superb, as are the communal areas. A very nice hall with a good atmosphere.
