History, Affiliations and Rankings

The University of Paris (Sorbonne University) was founded in the early 13th century with the advent of the guild of Parisian instructors and students (universitas magistrorum and scholarium Parisiensis), which competed with the training provided in the cloister schools of Notre-Dame de Paris on the Île de la Cité. This first "university" had its own norms and statutes, was organised into four faculties (liberal arts, law, medicine, and theology), and took root on the left side of the Seine, although not having its own buildings. All degrees conferred by Sorbonne University Abu Dhabi are internationally recognized and follow the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS). They are also recognized by the Commission for Academic Accreditation in the United Arab Emirates (CAA). The Sorbonne University is ranked #72 in the QS Global World University Ranking 2022. 

Infrastructure, Campuses and Courses

The university's main campus is in the Latin Quarter of Paris, on land that was inherited from the previous University of Paris. The Jussieu Site, originally the Campus Universitaire de Jussieu, was the major campus of the Pierre and Marie Curie University and is located in the 5th arrondissement of Paris (also known as Paris VI). Meanwhile, the history and geography departments, as well as the Serpente Library, are located on the institution's Maison de la Recherche campus, which includes over 50,000 works and around 300 French and foreign journals. Sorbonne University offers a wide range of courses in the arts, humanities, science, and engineering, as well as medical and paramedical degrees, from bachelor's to doctoral degrees. It provides single or multiple academic programs that allow students to create tailored career paths based on their unique characteristics, abilities, and professional goals.

Accomplishments and Alumni 

Sorbonne University's centuries of academic excellence, research expertise, and cultural relevance stretch far beyond Paris, with exciting worldwide strategic alliances and Sorbonne University Abu Dhabi touching every corner of the globe. Across the three faculties, the university develops long-term international connections. These collaborations build ambitious joint projects based on mutual trust, which often include diverse issues and inspire innovative responses to vast, complicated challenges. The UMI was founded by professors André-Jean Attias (Sorbonne University) and Eunkyoung Kim (Yonsei University) and focuses on functional materials for optics, electronics, and systems. The goal of the project is to create the fundamental building blocks of tomorrow's electronics, which could lead to unique 3D printable organic electronics systems with qualities that will be tested by researchers. One'll be giving their all to a tough academic program and receiving the best in multidisciplinary teaching if they join the university’s community of 55,000 students and 360,000 alumni throughout the world.
