Student life

Aix-Marseille University is full of societies and services offered to students, especially in neuroscience. 

Societies and clubs

Check the list established by the Student Life Office to find out more about AMU student associations.

We have selected the following associations:

  • The Neuronautes (formely ESCAPE): association of students and graduates in neuroscience (see below)
  • Hippo’thèse: association of doctoral students and doctors in life and health sciences in Aix-Marseille
  • Cerveau Point Comm : association whose aim is to disseminate scientific knowledge in the field of neuroscience to the general public (in particular by organising Brain Awareness Week).

The Animafac network offers a toolbox to create your own association.


At AMU’s student life office, you will find information about your university or student life: housing, catering, transport, health, social, culture, sports, leisure activities…

Neuronautes is the association of neuroscience students of Aix-Marseille University. Composed of students and former graduates, our organization aims to promote neuroscience and to provide a platform for exchange between institutional and professional student partners. Since 2016, the association has already welcomed more than 3000 participants at various events and more than 50 prestigious guests. The association is composed of a small office, which is accompanied during the preparation of the events by many active members. In September 2019, the association was awarded the first prize for student initiatives by the Marseille City Council.

Neuronautes is above all events and encounters. On the program this year:

  • Conferences for the general public, particularly as part of Brain Awareness Week.
  • Neurotalks, i.e. interactive encounters with professionals from all scientific backgrounds.
  • Charity actions (blood donation, neurodon)
  • Coffee-debates around various science themes (including Pint of Science)
  • Campus events (such as the Printemps des Associations)
  • And many other surprises in the making…
