  • 15 disciplines in which students can prepare for the agrégation competitive exam, through a specialised master’s or a specific course.

The Faculty holds the grounding of all courses in research as a fundamental principle. As early as the bachelor’s level, intellectual autonomy is acquired through contact with teachers, lecturers and researchers, and research progressively takes a predominant place in academic curricula.

Language requirements

Prior to moving to France to join a French university, it is important that you have a sufficient level in French (written and oral).
Please note that most of our courses are taught in French. It is therefore strongly recommended that you reinforce your French language skills before you join the Faculty of Arts and Humanities.
For university-level courses, the proficiency level required in French is B2 for bachelor’s degrees and C1 for master’s degrees, based on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).
If you need to improve your language skills, you can apply for different French language courses and programmes, according to your needs.
You can also register for French language certification examinations if you need to obtain a language certificate.

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).
