Onto the international stage: partnership with China

China is committed to supporting PhD candidates, postdoctoral students and faculty mobility at Sorbonne University.

Sorbonne University and the China Scholarship Council (CSC), one of the main funding agencies for higher education in China, signed an agreement on September 18th, 2014. Thanks to this partnership, CSC Scholarships will be specifically awarded for outgoing mobility to Sorbonne University through:


  • Up to 30 PhD scholarships per year during 5 years for doctoral studies in Sorbonne University’ doctoral schools


  • Joint “co-tutelle” PhD or joint supervision


  • Fellowships for postdocs or invited professors hosted by Sorbonne University member institutions.


This partnership aims to reinforce the strong ties between Sorbonne University and China.
