Vocational guidance and counselling

The Careers service (Direction de l’orientation, des stages et de l’insertion professionnelle - DOSIP) will inform, guide and assist you in constructing your academic and professional project, whether you are a university student, a secondary education student, or a professional in continuing education.

At any point during the year, you can meet our careers advisers during individual consultations offering guidance about:

  • Your bachelor’s programme
  • Your choice of master’s
  • How to prepare for a competitive exam
  • A change in your choice of degree, etc.

Our careers advisers provide students with support and guidance to help them build an academic path in keeping with their career goals and aspirations. Consultations take place in a confidential and privileged setting and allow you to review your current academic path and reflect on your goals, in order to identify other options that will get you closer to fulfilling your professional project.

Academic counselling sessions are also held each year at the end of the first term, to provide information and guidance to students wishing to switch bachelor’s programmes.

The Careers service (DOSIP) organises numerous events and workshops throughout the year, and is also always open to students who seek counselling, so that all students have the opportunity to receive advice and assistance. All events are shared on the website “Plateforme Carrière”, a useful tool when looking for jobs and internships. The platform also allows you to contact the careers advisers and to register for the various events organised to guide you towards employment, allowing you to meet with professionals and be introduced to recruiting companies.

In addition to your academic curriculum, there is also a wide array of opportunities that allow you to get acquainted with the world of work and broaden your prospects. For instance, as part of your studies, you can enlist in voluntary community service, do an internship, discover entrepreneurship, apply for a student job, get course credits for your volunteer work, or join an association.

Entrepreneurial training

Sorbonne University is devoted to stimulating entrepreneurship among its students, from undergraduate to doctoral level.
Students are trained in entrepreneurship – one of the possible prospects at the end of their studies – and Sorbonne University supports them in reaching their career goals.

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).

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.
