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.

Please note, if you are a student from a non-European country, you must apply for a student visa several weeks before your arrival in France within the French consulates or the EEF – “Etudes en France” - depending on the country. The visa type D is required for any stay exceeding 3 months. It allows to obtain, as soon as you arrive in France the student residence card. Please contact your Erasmus + coordinator at your home university.
