The university has more than 125 laboratories with the majority of them associated with the Centre national de la recherche scientifique (CNRS), the largest scientific research facility in France. The university offers its physics diploma in English after an agreement with Universite Sorbonne Abu Dhabi.
The University forms part of the Sorbonne University of Paris after a full merger that was finalized in 2018. UPMC is also the most modern scientific facility containing the best state of the art technology alongside some of Europe’s finest professors who all have experience with medicine, physics and science in general. The University is also unique since most of its lectures are done through the use of Power point slides but also has a well equipped library that contains all of the necessary books a student can look for when studying and revising for exams.
In overall, this university is the number one spot for anyone wishing to study Science, Medicine and Physics, with the best education one can only dream of consisting of the best professors, tutors and medical equipment. Students must be prepared for the toughest education when they join UPMC because of the very fast paced intensive courses and it is a well known fact that students who do not manage to catch up with classes, will fail their examinations.
It is also worth noting that the university also offers mathematics as a major and is in fact, also renowned for it. The mathematics courses are very intensive when compared to other universities and institutions but if the student is well determined, enjoys Math and is willing to output whatever they can, UPMC will without a doubt turn them into one of the finest mathematicians in the whole world and will give them an amazing opportunity for when they search for their job after they graduate. The University also offers majors in Business & Economics and Computer science, who also offer very good education thanks to their tutors and state of the art model. If one is looking to study the latter two majors, UPMC is a good choice as well.
Sports are not a prominent activity in the University. You will find students who like soccer and tennis but the vast majority are not as competitive as other colleges in the world such as the University of Toronto in Canada or the University of Rhode Island in the United States. UPMC is mostly a Scientific and Mathematical university who do not focus on sports as much.
