Join the Sorbonne’s Summer University!

The University of Paris-Sorbonne, located in the heart of the Latin Quarter, is famous for its academic prominence in the field of humanities. In July, the Sorbonne opens its doors to visitors from all over the world and offers non-degree courses in its international summer university.

The Sorbonne Summer University was created for people with different profiles and wishes:

- University lecturers (students and teachers/researchers) who wish to further their knowledge or debate on current research in the humanities.

- Visitors looking to enrich their stay in Paris.

The university offers a large range of cutting-edge programs, adapted to each person’s needs. A certificate will be delivered to participants at the end of their stay.

This year, our offer has expanded thanks to our partnership with the Université Pierre et Marie Curie, the Museum d’Histoire Naturelle and the Université Technologique de Compiègne.
