The Sports Department offers a range of sports activities for leisure or taken as a study option. If taken as an option, students will need to regularly attend all the courses to obtain a grade that will count towards the academic credit of the semester (for undergraduate degrees only).

The Sports Department offers a programme for those interested to work in the sport industry. Our strong collaboration with CIES-FIFA and the UAE Football Association (UAEFA) provides added value for students looking to find a job upon graduation.

We are very active in promoting student life on and off campus. The department organises specific courses, events and performances, and participates in the UAE Sports University League.

In September 2018, Sorbonne Abu Dhabi’s sports facilities were opened to the local community to offer dedicated sports courses designed specifically for the public. The quality of the courses offered by Sorbonne University Abu Dhabi is of a very high standard. It links the competencies of the physical education teachers (from the Sports Department) and all the sports facilities the university has to offer.
