Refugee students welcomed at Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne


University Diploma: "Sorbonne, Languages, Humanities, Citizenship"


In October 2015, Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne University set up a programme to welcome refugee students and created in 2017 a University Diploma specifically designed for refugee students of all nationalities.

This diploma provides future students with a level of university training and linguistic fluency enabling them to integrate into French society and join Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne University to begin or resume studies interrupted in their countries of origin.

This diploma gives students the fundamental elements to understand and express themselves in French as well as the means to put themselves in the cultural and pedagogical environment of the University.

In addition to the training in French as a foreign language which enables them to acquire a B2 level, the cultural and multidisciplinary section involves the various components of Paris 1.

In the continuity of the operation carried out for 2 years, this training provides them with the tools to take part in the society and defend their rights.

The main objective is to enable University Diploma students to integrate the various university courses from bachelor to master level.

Applications are not open yet.
