Admission à Sorbonne Université

Exchange Students

International students can attend classes anywhere from a two-week visit to the completion of an international degree. Each faculty has an international relations department to provide support to all international students, including application procedures, anticipating living costs, housing, and a host of other aspects of living and studying in Paris.

Exchange Students

Application & Admission

Exchange students join Sorbonne University within the framework of an exchange program. During an exchange the students are registered at their home university. The Erasmus+ coordinator at the student’s home university selects and nominates the student to Sorbonne University. 

For information on the courses you can choose, please consult your Erasmus+ coordinator with whom you will have to prepare your learning agreement. Your choice of courses has to be validated by your Erasmus + coordinator. 

However, you will have to show that you have a sufficient level in French, (written and oral). Most of the courses at Sorbonne University are held in French. We therefore strongly recommend that you consolidate your French language skills before your stay at Sorbonne University.

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.
