Undergraduate study

As an undergraduate student of Sorbonne Abu Dhabi, students benefit from world-class teaching and receive an internationally recognised degree upon graduation.

Sorbonne Abu Dhabi offers ten undergraduate bachelor degree programmes mirroring the same content and criteria of the programmes taught in Paris. All undergraduate degrees are delivered by Sorbonne University and University of Paris. Those partnerships ensure the same content is delivered in Abu Dhabi and Paris, while offering a multicultural environment and an opening to the world to our students, reflecting Abu Dhabi’s culture and diversity.

Our undergraduate (licence) degrees cover 6 semesters across 3 years covering 30 credits per semester. The evaluation process is based on continuous assessment and final exams at the end of each semester. All undergraduate degrees are taught in French except the Bachelor in Physics and the Bachelor in Records Management and Archival Science, which are taught in English. Students must be fluent in their ability of the primary language of instruction. Students who are not fluent with the French language can register to the Foundation year by applying to the Intensive French programme to improve their language skills to the required level before joining their chosen programme. For some students and according to the level, a Foundation year in Sciences will be advised before the first year of the Bachelor in Physics.

After the Bachelor programme, students can pursue postgraduate programmes at Sorbonne University or in renowned universities abroad. They can also apply for programmes at CELSA, the Sorbonne University Graduate School of Journalism, Communication, Marketing-Advertising, Digital communication and Human Resources, through the internal process.
