Sorbonne University Moves Up 12 Places in 2023 QS Rankings

Thanks to its excellent academic reputation, Sorbonne University is ranked 60th in this year's QS Rankings, up 12 places from last year. Additionally, for the first time, Sorbonne University finds itself in the top 5% of institutions worldwide. At the national level, the university is in third place.

The QS system has three types of rankings: a global overall ranking, subject rankings (across 51 different subjects), and five independent regional tables. This year's ranking also includes two new indicators: Employment Outcomes and International Research Network, which remain indicative because they are not weighted in the overall score of the institutions.
In terms of our positioning in relation to the other universities in this ranking, Sorbonne University significantly exceeds the global median for all indicators.

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).
