There are hundreds of different colleges and schools throughout Paris, however there is one that stands out above all, the Sorbonne. A world renound university that competes with Oxbridge and the Ivy League, the Sorbonne is a privilege, only the crème de la crème of French students get the chance to go there, so if you manage to spend a year there you really should count yourself lucky.

The Sorbonne can be found just off the banks of the Seine in Paris’ 5th arrondissement. It is understandably well serviced by the metro with a few different lines and stops to choose from in the close vicinity which makes the university very easy to get to. The metro is usually quite busy around this area as many tourists use it to visit Notre Dame de Paris which is only a stones through away from the University gates.
