Welcome to the website of Observatoire de la Vie Etudiante (Montpellier University)

What degree, which profession?

How to plan your postgraduate future based on accurate, professional surveys?

What job areas have Montpellier University alumni gone into?

The Observatoire de la Vie Etudiante (OVE) answers these questions by providing information on the professional careers of University of Montpellier graduates. (IUT, Faculté des Sciences, IAE, Ecoles Doctorales) The data reports look into the diverse areas of study and the issues related to employability. Thanks to powerful digital tools, nearly 4000 students have been surveyed every year, 30 months after graduation. OVE is part of the Direction des Etudes of Université Montpellier and works along with the Observatoires de la Région, forming the OBSIDE-LR. OVE conducts its research under request of Ministère de la Recherche et de l'Enseignement Supérieur. (Ministry of Research and Higher Education) Our website provides you with presentation files (listed by year or by course of study) describing alumni's jobs and companies they have been hired by, as well as with employment rates, a directory of jobs and an overview on the life of graduates continuing their studies. OVE also undertakes surveys to better understand the motivations, the projects and the difficulties of currents students. Summaries of their situation are available on our website.
