Application, Admission & Registration

Registrations 2023-2024

For many students, registration is now online. The aim is to register for one of the 600 courses on offer. The University of Montpellier has 17 faculties, schools and institutes, and a wide range of teaching disciplines - science, technology, physical and sports activities, medicine, pharmacy, law, political science, economics, management...

The administrative registration procedures have been set by the President of the University of Montpellier for 2023-2024.

What you need to know

School/university/extra-curricular or third-party liability insurance: an important supporting document

When you enroll, you will be asked to provide a certificate of school/university/extra-curricular insurance or a valid certificate of civil liability insurance. This insurance covers the obligation to repair damage caused to others through fault, carelessness or negligence, or by objects owned, rented or borrowed.

All students must be covered by civil liability insurance in the context of their studies (see the University of Montpellier's internal regulations).

You can obtain this document from your insurer, your mutual insurance company or when you open a bank account in France.

Important information:

  • Make sure you're not over-insured: before taking out any insurance, check that your comprehensive home or rental insurance (or those of your parents) do not already cover your private life or school/extra-curricular activities.
  • The certificate must be valid on the date of registration and include your full name.
  • A professional liability policy does not correspond to the request made for an administrative registration.
  • Similarly, a membership form or a payment slip do not constitute proof of insurance: these 2 documents are not acceptable.
  • The certificate must bear the words "civil liability".
Student and Campus Life Contribution (CVEC)

Before registering at university, you need to log on to the cvec.etudiant.gouv.fr website to find out what you need to do.

  1. Complete the necessary formalities via cvec.etudiant.gouv.fr. Remember to have your INE number ready (please spell your first and last names correctly).
  2. Keep your certificate, as you will be asked for it when you register, whether or not you are exempt from paying the contribution: the certificate is compulsory.
  3. Register or re-register according to the procedures in place at your faculty, school or institute.

The CVEC is a contribution "intended to promote the social, health, cultural and sporting welcome and support of students, and to bolster the preventive and health education actions carried out for them".

Depending on your situation, either :

  • you will be asked to pay a fixed fee of €100.
  • you'll be exempt

In both cases, you will be issued with a certificate: without it, you cannot complete your administrative registration.

Please note: For non-scholarship students, we invite you to log on now to the mesServices.etudiant.gouv. fr website to create an account and simplify your procedures.

If you register for more than one course in the same academic year, this contribution is only due for the first registration.

BEA / INE / Student number

What's the difference between these 3 numbers? The Base-Elèves Académique, or BEA, is a number assigned to every Sixième student in France, enabling individual identification in secondary education. The Identifiant National Etudiant, or INE, is assigned to every student enrolled in Terminale in France since 1995, or already enrolled in a French public higher education establishment.

Since 2018, the INE number has consisted of eleven characters, of which only the last 2 are letters.

The INE number assigned prior to 2018 consists of eleven characters, combining numbers and 1 to 5 letters.

The INE number differs from the social security number, also known as the INSEE number, in format (15 digits) and usage.

The INE is generally shown on the baccalauréat transcript (final or early tests). It also appears on school certificates issued by high schools and universities.

The student number (in addition to your name) serves as a personal identifier, particularly in cases of homonymy. The student number assigned by the University of Montpellier cannot be used at any other university, unlike the n°INE, which is recognized nationally.


I can't find my INE (Identifiant National Etudiant) number? The INE number is mandatory for your administrative registration.
If you have been a candidate for a French baccalaureate or have been enrolled in French higher education: you can find it on your baccalaureate transcript or your higher education transcript.
If you are a foreign student and have already studied in French higher education: you can find your INE number on your student card, school certificate or transcript.


I don't have an INE, what should I do?
The university will give you an INE when you register for the first time. It will then be valid at all French universities.


I forgot to enter my INE when I registered online and I've been given a new one. What should I do?
You must report the anomaly to the Registration Department immediately.

Postal address

I don't know my address at the start of the school year? What do I need to know when I register?
We recommend that you give a fixed family address for the fall. Don't forget to specify "Chez M/Mme..." if your name is not on the letterbox. You can then notify the Enrolment Department of your change of address at any time. This address is particularly important, as it will be used to contact you by post if necessary.


I'm going to change my address during the academic year. Do I need to report this?
Yes, you need to report this as soon as possible to your Registrar. Your address is particularly important, as it will be used to contact you by post if necessary.

Students with disabilities

Requests for study and/or examination accommodations in 2023-2024
