Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Along my way to the Musée Cluny I passed by the imposing buildings of La Sorbonne and made a short stop at the Place de la Sorbonne to take a picture of the Chapel of Sainte Ursule de la Sorbonne.

Every building of Le Sorbonne has its own story of its notable graduates, who changed the world of science, literature and arts. Not my first time in the Latin Quarter and certainly not the last.

I'm not sure how much you will see without a student or faculty member to escort you in past the front desk. But this is the big old university, a big presence on the Left Bank. The buildings are a bit austere, but definitely imposing. And there are lots of cafes around for you to sit and admire the view.

Wandering around this part of the city my twin brother Stephen and I found ourselves on Place De La Sorbonne which is a great square to take in the beautiful views of parts of Le Sorbonne which is one of the best education centres in the country and one of the most historic .
The buildings that make up Le Sorbonne are amazing ,one of the most stunning buildings I viewed is Le Sorbonne Church ,a wonderful looking church building ,if you're in the area it's an education centre to most definitely check out if you're in the area around the Latin Quarter.

Beautiful campus of buildings and interesting too. We visited the Museum of Medicine on the campus and there is a small fee to enter. It is just one room but full of interesting items spanning the centuries of medical care. I was thrilled to see Lister’s “spray canisters” for carbolic acid which he used to disinfect his operating rooms prior to surgery; start of germ theory! It was an informative visit and takes about 45 mins to an hour.

I join the course mainly because it was la Sorbonne.
I pass the exam to know my level of French and I enrol on the B2 level.
The course I sign on was 72 hours and then I add conferences an extra 200 euros.
When the course started and we al count the total hours, they were only 32 hours of class. In our class we were 15 and we all complain to the administration, but their answer was that you suppose to have study hours at home by yourself with your exercises......wawawauuu
Never hear that before in my life!
They are not good at all
Yes they send you a lot of exercise that you never get to know.... the answer ....of the explanation.....
I actually think my French is worst than when I started the course as I feel 0 confidence now
I never have experience with such a bad college university, you never received any confirmation no information....
really really bad...
I do not have experience with Allianze but they couldn't be as bad

La Sorbonne, established in the 13th century is one of the oldest and most well known universities. It is located in the Latin Quarter. We only saw it from the outside. It is surrounded by restaurants and many other types of shops. It is certainly worth a visit if you can spare the time.

Wonderful historic seat of learning.In July the Sorbonne holds a 4 week Summer School and 2 of the courses are in English.5 days either morning or afternoon with Sorbonne lecturers and excellent subjects e.g. The French Revolution,French Poetry,American authors in Paris between the first and second wars.On the second day a complimentary tour of the Sorbonne including areas not included in public tours.A beautiful place with fascinating history.The Summer School is fantastic value.I attended in 2018 and 2019 and plan to go again this year.I highly recommend it.

Set in the middle of the Latin quarter, the classy Sorbonne is one of the oldest and most famous universities in the world.
Due to Christmas holidays it was closed so we couldn't enter it, just wandered around and admired the grandeour and beauty of the edifice.
