Studying at the academy

Throughout their time at the ENSM Academy, students and trainees liaise with the Bureau for Students and Trainees (Bureau Etudes et Formation, BEF) and with the Academy library.

Under the authority of the Academy Director and Educational Assistant, the Bureau is the main contact point between the Academy and the students. It provides the link between the Academy and students for administrative, educational and disciplinary matters.

The Bureau is in charge of welcoming students, following-up and issuance of documents.

Each year, the ENSM Academy provides students with a compehensive Directory of shipping companies, to support their search for cadet training contracts.



“Contribution de vie étudiante et de campus” CVEC is a mechanism funded by students, to help promoting actions and activities related to health, social care, culture, sport or fitness. Fees are set to 92 €.
