Continuing Education Opportunities

In English

Sorbonne University offers short courses in English in the following domains:
- In Biosciences-animal experimentation: 

- In Biosciences-Epigenics: initiation to chromatinandmethylated DNA immunoprecipitation
- In Geosciences: from outcrops to seismic acquisition and interpretation

In addition to the above short courses, Sorbonne University’s continuing education department is equipped to tailor any of its courses in terms of content and can also offer the course in English. Please contact the Continuing Education Division for more information.

In French
Short courses in French, from 1 to 5 days, based on the university's research and innovation potential (all links below are to the French site):

Tailor-made short courses are designed to meet the ever-changing needs of the professions and the demands of companies and institutions. Science and engineering laboratory visits and healthcare immersion courses are offered. The Continuing Education Department also organizes seminars, workshops and conferences on specific themes or subjects on demand from the Faculty of Arts and Humanities.

French National Diplomas and Qualifications

  • Over 60 national diplomas are available primarily in French (some of which can be accessed with the personal training account (CPF): a DAEU (a baccalaureate equivalence to enable access to higher education), bachelor's, master's and engineering degrees, and PhDs.
  • We offer support within the framework of the returning to studies: information, advice and individualised programs, from DAEU B (in science) to PhD.


VAE and VAPP

  • Validation of Acquired Experience (VAE) and individual or collective support, available in English

A VAE will validate professional experience with a view to earning all or part of a degree: bachelor's, master's, PhD, engineering degrees and university diplomas. The VAE allows access to degree programs without having the required qualification; it also enables adults to obtain part of a professional diploma, or even the full diploma. This may result from professional and personal experience, from the exercise of trade or associative responsibilities or previous training. The VAE is therefore both an official recognition of prior learning, an essential tool in the process of lifelong learning, and a way to reduce the time spent on an education program.  

  • Validation of personal and professional achievements, available in English

The VAPP allows people to resume studies without having the required diploma. The continuing education department can offer the validation of studies, professional experience, or personal achievements for access to the different levels of higher education (VAPP).

The University Expertise

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:
