DU Sorbonne Alliance

The Sorbonne Alliance was initiated in 2018, and became operational at the beginning of 2021 with the signing of a territorial coordination agreement between its three founding institutions : Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne, the ESCP Business School and Université Sorbonne Nouvelle. This is a flexible and reactive alliance which allows collaborative work across these institutions, while maintaining total freedom of movement of its members. It seeks to create a large cluster in social sciences and humanities, and to nurture the interdisciplinary synergies to meet challenges where required.

The DU Sorbonne Alliance offers classes in French as a foreign language from the A2 (elementary user) level to the B1 (intermediate) level as well as methodology classes.
