The results of the QS World University Rankings by subject (QS WUR Subject) have just been released. The good news is that Sorbonne University is moving up in all subject areas worldwide, especially in Engineering and Technology, and in Social Sciences and Management.

Published by the British education company Quacquarelli Symonds (QS), the QS World University Ranking is one of the three best known university rankings, along with the Times Higher Education and Shanghai.

On April 1st, QS published the first results for subject-based rankings.

At the international level, Sorbonne University rose 30 places in Engineering & Technology, and 20 places in Social Sciences & Management.

In Natural Sciences, our institution progressed to the rank of 14th (+8 places). Similarly, in Arts & Humanities, our institution moved up from 34th place to 23rd place, on par with the University of Tokyo.

Sorbonne University's impressive progression in these rankings can be attributed to several factors:

  • The increase in the score of the H-Index indicator, which is based on the number of publications and citations of an institution's researchers, and which measures their productivity and scientific impact;
  • The heavy weighting of the Academic Reputation indicator, which is intended to measure the reputation of the institution in the academic world;
  • The introduction of the IRN indicator, which is used to measure the diversity of the institution's international collaborations. This is the first QS World University Ranking that takes this indicator into account.

Chiffres-clés

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).

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.
