Our vision

A world-class research university inventing the knowledge of tomorrow

Sorbonne University will mobilize all fields of knowledge—science, medicine, engineering, humanities, social sciences, the arts, business and management—to offer the highest quality of university education and multidisciplinary research, to create informed and engaged citizens, and to benefit society at large.


"Our ambition is to have students prepared to respond to the major challenges of the 21st century"

To achieve this, Sorbonne University is:


  • Developing the pedagogical and scientific transdisciplinary approaches needed to understand complex and wide-ranging problems, for example: medicine is increasingly calling on engineering; archeology is in need of chemistry; and history is in need of science.

  • Fostering the success of each and every student: Degree programs are offered at a variety of levels and difficulties and activities favoring employability and student entrepreneurship have been developed.

  • Increasing international cooperation to consolidate the excellence of its training and research activities and strengthening its hosting services for international students and researchers in order to better support them and help them integrate.

  • Encouraging and enhancing university and campus life thanks to ambitious social, cultural and sporting programs
