Thanks to numerous and growing ties, Chimie ParisTech - PSL offers European students high-level courses in Chemistry that allow them to explore the many facets of the discipline linked to areas such as materials, energy, environment, and health. The school’s reputation is based on training through research. Whether it is for a semester or a year, our training allows students to acquire additional skills or strengthen them.

In addition, as the school is located in the heart of Paris, the student experience is also cultural. Each year, over a dozen Erasmus students come to Chimie ParisTech - PSL.
