Basic and applied science, engineering, social science, the humanities, the arts, and creation: at PSL, world-renowned teams and researchers work together in all areas of inquiry.
Our university provides a unique ecosystem of robust multidisciplinarity, fully seated in the international scientific community through formal research agreements with the world’s top universities and with direct participation by our elite pool of students, 70% of whom are enrolled in Master’s or doctoral programs.
With its world-class schools working hand-in-hand with research institutions, PSL intends to strengthen its standing as a worldwide leader in several fields, fostering formidable scientific innovations through its multidisciplinary approach, and continuing to build on what is already one of the greatest scientific hubs in France, Europe, and even the world.

PSL is home to research laboratories engaged in all areas of study, from basic science to applied science and engineering, social science to the humanities, and even research focused on the arts and the creative process. PSL’s research landscape includes 17 research fields populated by 181 PSL laboratories.
Following the model of graduate schools in the world’s top universities, the graduate programs are unprecedented curricula among higher education institutions in France. PSL’s graduate programs offer top-level training at Master’s and doctorate levels, based on the scientific resources of all component schools included in PSL.
Promoting a model of research and graduate education programs is very compatible with the international systems and it facilitates the movement of students, research professors, and researchers.
