Recruitment Campaign for Future Doctoral Candidates

The recruitment campaigns for interdisciplinary doctoral programs with our Institutes and Initiatives are underway for 2022. Recruitment campaigns by individual doctoral schools are also progressively opening.

Institutes and initiatives programs

Most of the doctoral projects proposed by Sorbonne University’s Institutes and Initiatives programs are now online. Candidates can consult them, and should contact the project directors to express their interest. With the agreement from project directors, students may then apply via the online form. The application must be complete to be considered. 


  • Deadline for applications: 26 April
  • Convocation of candidates: 10 May
  • Audition before a jury: 16-27 May
  • Results posted: 3 June

Interview with a jury

The institutes and initiatives compose a jury whose members are chosen for their scientific expertise according to the projects selected. Representatives of the doctoral schools concerned are invited. The candidate is evaluated on the quality of their academic background and research skills; the suitability of their profile for the project; their ability to explain the project being defended and to answer the jury's questions; and the feasibility of the project being defended within the time allocated for completion of the thesis.

The Faculty of Medicine teaches the 3 cycles of medical studies: from PASS (integrated into the faculty) to the 3rd cycle including DES, DESC, DU and DIU. The lessons are given mainly on two sites: Pitié-Salpêtrière and Saint-Antoine. The faculty also provides paramedical education: speech therapy, psychomotricity and orthoptics.

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).

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.
