High International Mobility

International Ties in Research

Promoting international exchanges in the research field is one of the Faculty’s priorities. The international scope of its research activities, as well as its excellent reputation are widely recognized :

  • Several research teams collaborate with foreign teams,
  • Some of the Faculty’s researchers are leading members of a number of archeological digs abroad,
  • Foreign teachers and researchers visit the Faculty regularly,
  • The SUP publications (The Sorbonne University Press) include many foreign contributions.

Student mobility is one of the Faculty’s priorities. Students are able to complete part of their cursus at a foreign university. To help foreign students studying at the Faculty, the university offers tutoring catered to the study needs of individuals studying in a foreign language. The university also plans on improving the logistics of student housing exchanges to make them easier for students.
