Les écoles doctorales

Doctoral schools

Sorbonne University has 23 doctoral schools covering all disciplinary fields of research in the humanities, languages and social sciences, sciences and engineering, and medicine.

Doctoral schools

The doctoral school is responsible for all matters related to the doctorate.

It brings together a set of research units grouped around a given scientific field.

The doctoral school is responsible for recruiting, monitoring, training and defending doctoral candidates. It offers courses and scientific activities to doctoral candidates and validates each doctoral candidate's individual educational plan.

The doctoral school is run by a director assisted by a board, which monitors and coordinates the life of the doctoral school. Doctoral candidates are invited to elect their representatives to it every two years. Bylaws define its organisation and functioning, in particular for governance, admission, the allocation of funding, supervision and the conduct of doctoral courses. They are published on the doctoral school's website.

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:
