TOP TIP: Fees! 40€ (20€ for students with grants or scholarships). You simply have to provide a doctor’s certificate (that is less than three months old) in order to access all the activities on offer throughout the academic year!

The registration fees for sport at the IUT must be paid at the Student Services Centre (in French: la Scolarité), either as you enrol for your course or during the academic year (to be paid by check or by credit card). All students can choose to be graded for their chosen sport and receive an extra 0,3 points added to their average grade each semester. 

The IUT welcomes elite athletes (in French; SHN or sportifs de haut niveau) and offers adjustments to their timetables. If they are selected by the university SHN boards, they automatically receive the extra 0,3 points.

Different statuses are available:

  • Elite athlete status– On the ministerial list, approved by the ministry. 
  • Elite athlete status approved by Montpellier University’s Sports Office.

In both cases, the student-athlete must contact the Sports Office in May in order to apply for elite athlete status and inform them of their chosen department of study.
