Campus France procedure

To apply for a French Higher Education Institution (HEI) you must follow the Campus France “Etudes en France” procedure (EEF). Campus France is the national agency for the promotion of the French higher education system, which manages the application procedure. This completely dematerialized procedure will help you with your application and until the visa request. 

Campus France procedure

The application procedure depends on two indicators: your nationality and your level of studies (higher education or secondary school diploma). Depending on the level of your studies, you must fill in the withe file (dossier blanc) if you are applying for 1st year of bachelor (“Licence 1”) or the green file (“dossier vert”) for a 2nd or 3rd year of Bachelor or for a Master. 

Complete the according document (white or green file), with your contact details, your choices of three universities maximum and bring the white file to the Department of Culture at the French Embassy in your country of origin or the green file to the university of your choice.

Students who wish to enroll in the 2nd year of a bachelor program are advised to also apply for the 1st year of the bachelor at the same time. This is because admission of the university is granted following an examination of each application by a pedagogical commission that judges whether the candidate's prior studies meet the program requirements. If they do not, the candidate may only be able to enter the degree program in the 1st year.

Sorbonne University and Campus France work closely together to enable International students to join our institution.

Chiffres-clés
Welcome to Sorbonne University's Faculty of Science & Engineering

A unique combination of courses and expertise

Our international study programmes are organised according to the major disciplinary areas of the faculty. They represent the graduate study programmes that are not strictly conducted in French or that could be suitable (in part) for non French-speaking students. They also reflect part of the diversity of the disciplines involved and the bi- and inter-disciplinary aspects of many of the courses we offer.

 

Research & Innovation

We rely on disciplinary skills and on interdisciplinary approaches to renew concepts, methods and research subjects and to focus on some of the crucial issues faced by our societies: transformations affecting the very construction of knowledge (data, AI), the treatment of complex objects (the environment, marine and ocean sciences, cultural heritage) or our contributions to addressing societal challenges (climate change, healthcare).

Study at
The Faculty of Science & Engineering

Our campuses offer different and unique experiences to our students, visitors and staff. Resources and support services are also available to ensure an equal chance at success to all.

Campus Life

In addition to the cultural activities and events organised throughout the year by our clubs and societies, the Parismus society organises numerous events, evenings and cultural visits that will help you discover France and its parisian life.
