The faculty offers French language classes (from beginners to advanced) that have tailor-made contents and methods adapted to science students. These classes are free for exchange students and organised as semester courses, intensive seminars during the first week of each semester, or intensive summer courses. You find more information on our website.



The Faculty of Science and Engineering at Sorbonne University offers a variety of rooms in student residences thanks to a partnership with the Cité Internationale Universitaire de Paris and the CROUS. Some rooms are reserved for international exchange students (including TASSEP).
