Faculty and administrative staff

Are you a teacher, researcher or administrative staff member from a foreign university? Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne University welcomes international faculty and administrative staff members within the framework of specific programmes.

Visiting professorship programme

Every year, Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne University welcomes more than 120 professors from foreign institutions, as part of its visiting professorship programme.

During your stay (from one week to four weeks), you will have to teach, conduct research, lead conferences, develop exchanges between Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne and your institution and/or set up any other educational or scientific project.

How to apply

In order to be invited to teach at Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne University, you need to find a hosting professor who will present your application to the advisory board (CCS) of his/her academic department. To do so, you will need to send him/her a detailed CV mentioning your home institution.

The list of visiting professors and the duration of their stay are drawn up on the proposal of the advisory board, and after the decision of the academic board (CAC restreint). If your application is accepted, your hosting professor will be in charge of the follow-up of your stay.

Once you have been accepted

You will receive an invitation letter once you have been accepted. To prepare your stay as well as possible, we encourage you to get in touch with the International Relations Department as soon as possible, which will be in charge of paying your flat-rate compensation. This compensation will partially cover your expenses during your stay (accommodation and food costs).

Erasmus+ programme

If your home institution has signed an Erasmus+ agreement with Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne University, you have the possibility to carry out a training or teaching mobility within our university as part of the European programme.


Whether you want to apply for a teaching or training staff mobility, we encourage you to get in touch with a teacher, researcher or an administrative staff member from one of our departments to initiate your mobility project. If you are selected, you can apply for an Erasmus+ grant from your home institution.

With a strong willingness to develop the internationalisation of its staff, our university has signed agreements to develop training mobilities with more than 100 of its 230 Erasmus+ partners. Please note that academic staff members are also eligible for training mobilities.

Erasmus+ International Credit Mobility project

The Erasmus+ International Credit Mobility project also offers mobility opportunities to foreign teachers, researchers and administrative staff members who wish to visit Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne University.

Partner institution

Our university has signed an agreement with the University of Nouakchott Al Aasriya (Mauritania).

We encourage you to ask your home institution for information on how to apply. Once your mobility project has been validated by your home institution, get in touch with the International Relations Department of Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne University to find out how to complete the necessary procedures before your departure.

If you are selected for a mobility in this framework, you will automatically receive the MIC grant. This grant includes individual support (€160 for 5 days of mobility and 2 days of travel) and a travel allowance which depends on the distance between Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne and your home institution (€530 for Mauritania). These amounts are the same whether you are applying for a staff mobility for teaching or training.
