To apply for a doctorate at Sorbonne University, you must first identify a doctoral research project.


For this, you can:

  • Consult the websites of the doctoral schools related to the scientific theme you are interested in, 
  • Consult the offers of our doctoral programs, 
  • Get directly in touch with a researcher or academic researcher at Sorbonne University wo is working in your field of interest. 

Depending on the doctoral school your research unit reports to, the recruitment campaign and admission process may differ, particularly in terms of selection and funding. We therefore invite you to contact the doctoral school to which you wish to apply (list and contact details at the end of this section). 

A doctorate application must be approved by the project leader (the future thesis director) and the director of the research unit. The director of the doctoral school proposes the admission to the president of the university, who makes the final decision.

Consult the list of doctoral schools. 

The faculty of medicine is closed to the public and operates according to a business continuity plan (research, pedagogy, administrative) since Monday, March 16, 2020. The closure of the faculty to the public effectively results in the cancellation of all courses in face-to-face. Research activities and vital administrative activities are maintained, under the conditions specified by the university administration in the Business Continuity Plan. Beyond the end of classroom lessons, university libraries are closed. The situation is constantly changing, staff and students are invited to consult their emails, the university intranet and the FAQ to stay informed.

All users (students and staff) have access to more precise information on a dedicated page:
