Please note that the dates have been modified on 19/04/2021 for access to Master 2.

  • You can make up to 3 requests via the E-candidat application for the Faculty of Law and Political Science. You can also make other requests for other components of Aix-Marseille University.
  • It is imperative, in your email exchanges with the school, to have previously verified that the answer to your question is not provided either on these pages or in the Frequently Asked Questions. Moreover, it is important to specify as many elements as possible in your e-mail: Name, First name, Degree, E-candidate application number...

Only a pedagogical committee is authorized to evaluate your application file, so it is imperative that you submit a complete file within the allotted time. No advice on your curriculum will be given by email by the administrative service.

  • Master 1 application

    Access to Master 1 studies is reserved for holders of a law degree. Applicants who do not hold this degree must obtain anequivalence decision.

    Applications must be submitted between April 23 and May 17, 2021, except for the Urbanism and Development field (see the summary table above).

    Applications must be submitted exclusively through the eCandidat platform. No applications will be received by any other means.

    Important - pre-selection for an international exchange programme and selection for Master 1 :

    The pre-selection for an Erasmus departure, by Civis or Hors Europe, within the framework of a Master 1, does not prejudge the admission in Master 1, which depends only on the admission in Master 1 at the end of the E-candidate procedure. Therefore, even if a student is pre-selected for an Erasmus trip, by Civis or Hors Europe, as part of a Master 1, he/she will only be admitted to the exchange programme if he/she has been selected for a Master 1. Students are therefore invited to undergo the ordinary selection procedure for the Master's programme, as provided for in the E-candidate application.

  • Master 2 applications

    There are two different procedures for accessing the Master 2 programme, depending on the student's situation. These situations are described below. If you have any questions about the procedures for accessing the Master 2 programme, you can ask your questions on the dedicated forum.

    Students must download and complete the Procedure Form to indicate which procedure they are applying for, then attach it in PDF format to their application file.

    Students with a right of access to Master 2

    All students who have been selected for admission to the Master 2 programme are entitled to full access to the Master 2 programme. This applies to students admitted to the main list as well as to those admitted to the complementary list or on appeal (including rectoral appeal). This benefit is retained in the event of a repeat year authorised by the jury, provided that the student had previously been selected for entry into Master 1. It is also retained in the event of a gap year, if this is carried out in accordance with the regulatory conditions. On the other hand, the interruption of studies outside of the gap-year scheme deprives the student of his or her right of access to Master 2.

    You must apply between 26 April and 9 May 2021 and make up to 3 wishes via the E-candidat platform.

    The assignment of the student to a Master 2 is subject to the decision of the director of the field, after consultation with the heads of the courses concerned. The wishes formulated by the candidates are taken into account within the limits of the places available in each of the courses.

    Students who do not have a right of access to Master 2

    The following students are concerned

    • students who have followed a non-selective Master 1 course (or equivalent)
    • Repeat students who were not selected when they first registered for a Master 1 course;
    • students who have followed a selective course in another institution or another field;
    • students who have interrupted their studies since the validation of their Master 1, except in the case of a regulatory break;
    • students who have been registered administratively in the field outside the selection process, in particular for the purposes of a study period abroad.

    These students are subject to a selection procedure. You must apply from 17 May to 04 June 2021 and make up to 3 wishes via the E-candidat platform.

    Please note : the number of wishes cannot be accumulated between the two procedures and candidates may not make more than 3 wishes in total.

  • Applications for a Master's degree in work-linked training

    The Faculty offers several masters 2 in alternation. Access to these courses is subject to the application procedures mentioned above. However, some access modalities to these courses may be specific.

    For more information, please contact the people in charge of these courses on our page dedicated to work-study programs.

  • Equivalences

    The Board of Directors of Aix-Marseille University approved on January 19, 2021 the implementation of a partial exemption from differentiated registration fees for the academic year 2021/2022.
