Preventive healthcare and psychological services

 The University offers a preventive healthcare service and psychological counselling for students.

During their first year in higher education, students must attend a compulsory medical check-up.

The aim of the check-up (which will be carried out by a nurse or doctor) is to assess students’ state of health and their physical, mental and social wellbeing. The purpose of this assessment is to give students the best chances of success in their studies.

The doctor and nurse will also attend to students who are unwell.

- Doctor: Emmanuel Fière

- Nurse: Brigitte Eymonet

 Sport at Unîmes

You can take part in sports alongside your studies. You can find details of what’s on offer and where and the names of organisers on this page.


If you are on your country’s list of elite athletes (in France, this list is drawn up by the Ministry of Health, Youth and Sport), please make yourself known to us when you register.

The university makes arrangements for elite athletes to follow initial and continuing education courses. We support them by adapting study programmes to fit in with their sports commitments, so they can combine their university studies and their sporting career: for example, giving them priority when groups are selected for tutorials and practical work.

Student societies

UNÎMES offers students a number of subject-specific and inter-disciplinary societies. These are listed on the dedicated ‘student societies’ page.
