We continue and will continue to make strong strategic decisionsassured Florent Pigeon, president of the University of Jean Monnet in Saint-Etienne. It seems important to me to specify that these elections are supported by Hcéres (High Committee for the Evaluation of Research and Higher Education, editor’s note) which brought an analysis welcoming these elections. » Among the weaknesses pointed out by this Hcéres report are further education, which needs to be further developed, and insufficient funding from the state. In terms of strengths, the analysis points to a high-quality research program of the faculty. And like every 5 years, this beginning of the school year also means the evolution and renewal of the training offer that this facility offers.

Training “in accordance with professional questions”

In this five-year cycle, we evaluate and propose new paths and the development of existing ones.reminds Alain Trouillet, vice president for education and international relations of ÚJM. We challenged the content for a better rate of professional input. So the Accès Santé license is now open at the Roanne campus with around thirty registered students. The Faculty of Law has also revised the offer of a master’s degree specializing in private law with a focus on justice, court proceedings, one in commercial law with a course in HR and social law, and one in public law with a proposed course in European international law. Master 2 “director in computer music” and “director in digital art” become a master in “contemporary creation and new technologies”.

The works will make it possible to turn the page on paved campuses with large parking lots.”

Opening up abroad

In addition, three new internationally open master’s degrees were created. One in the field of sports, the second in law and the third in translation. In total, Jean Monnet University has 6 masters abroad, which represents 200 to 300 students, depending on the year. ” Last year we welcomed 2,400 students of foreign nationality, which is not far from the pre-crisis level”, notes Alain Trouillet. In addition, 80 Ukrainian students will enter the university this fall. A figure that is constantly changing, as the vice-president for training and international relations points out that men have trouble leaving the country: that’s why they come in droves.

5,750 euros per student

Thanks to the ongoing work, Florent Pigeon also wishes ” that campuses are attractive with these new facilities. The work will make it possible to turn the page on asphalt areas with large parking lots”. However, the problem of insufficient funding from the state still hangs over the university. SCSPs (Public Service Charge Grants) awarded to the 37 multidisciplinary universities that, like her, have a medical faculty, amount to €5,750 per student, compared to an average of €7,290. That is a deficit of 1,540 euros per student. Stéphane Riou, Vice President of the Board of Directors and Resources, explains that the dialogue with the Ministry continues. After the management dialogue, the university received an additional payment from SCSP in the amount of approximately 600,000 euros, part of which is not permanent in time.

We live with it, it’s been years, just like other universitiescontinues. This allowed us to develop resilience and the ability to find resources. In the context of energy savings, these are qualities, even if the lack of employees and the energy crisis are different topics”. The president explained that after two years of Covid, there are no plans to close the facility even for two weeks to save energy.
