Earn points on your GPA

Several components of the University of Montpellier offer you the possibility of integrating sport into your university curriculum. You should check that the chosen activity is compatible with your schedule (place, day, time).
Remember that you must do a maximum of 10 sessions per week over a semester.

How to do it?

  • find out more and register with my school;
  • pick up my MANDATORY attendance card from the SUAPS office, bringing a photo and a medical certificate stating that I am not contraindicated in the practice of sport.

Optional sport option

Each educational component defines the number of points awarded to the Sport option on the overall average.


The sports proposed for these options and UEs and the timetable are downloadable from the SUAPS programme. The options and UE are identifiable through the names of the "evaluating" teachers.

Three evaluation criteria were selected:

  • investment ;
  • progress made ;
  • the level reached.

Nota :
In order to practice the option or the EU, registration at SUAPS is not compulsory. But you must present a medical certificate of no contraindication to the practice of sport to one of the SUAPS offices. As a reminder, the option or the UE alone gives you controlled access to a maximum of 10 sessions . Only the registration to SUAPS gives you the possibility to practice all the activities.
