Course recommendations
If you are expecting an anglo-saxon view on teaching, forget it immediately. Courses here are taught by extremely distinguished professors of the highest order. Classes usually include a famous professor reading into a microphone from his/her own textbook, which you will likely already own, and which you will recopy word for word. It is only in later years of study (3rd-4th and on) that you will experience guest lecturers or even meet your professor personally. It is rare that questions are asked in class - this is something you have to bother your tutorial professor about, not the official teacher presiding the course. If you choose to ask a question outloud to the professor in the middle of a class in the ampitheatre, don't be surprised if all the students look at you funny. Professors, however, seem to welcome this since it happens so rarely. All TA's or teachers of the "TD's" (travaux dirigés) are also extremely educated - No third year students passing you their notes here. It is mandatory that each tutorial leader be in the midst of preparing a doctorate, or he/she must have already obtained one. Overall, the professors are some of the best in their field, though they tend to be extremely unapproachable. See your TA. Also - Be prepared to work absolutely nonstop. You'll find yourself bringing your books when you go grocery shopping and to the bar. You will need to be a major geek to succeed in the demanding curriculum - especially if French is not your native language. Enjoy! :)

Personal recommendation
There is no a campus so I didn't know well about the university. But from the Professors who gave us lectures, I can say the Paris 1 has a high level academic background.

Personal recommendation
You should be an ndependent person and have a decent level o language skills. There is not much help for international students. Also if you want to find a place to live don't start in September, start in May-June because living space is limited in this city.

Overall
Personal recommendation
I recommend this university for people who are seeking: - A short time abroad for the language experience. It will be dangerously fun for you, and you will never want to leave. You will make wonderful friends, and a fantastic academic experience is ensured. You will probably come back for your honeymoon and every other possible excuse you can find. - I would recommend this for people who appreciate the need to work extraordinarily hard to obtain a degree. If you plan to come here for several years of study, be prepared to fall in love with cobblestone streets, French wine and cheese, theatre and music... All the while experiencing much stress. The Sorbonne is a prestegious school due to the academic program, not merely the cute cafés that surround it. If you're coming here for an education, you're guaranteed a good one... The passion of the city is a fantastic bonus.

ABOUT
L'université naît au XIIIe siècle, de l'organisation en corporation des maîtres et écoliers de Paris. Primitivement installés dans l'Ile de la Cité, ils sont venus, dès le XIIe siècle, dans le futur "quartier latin" où la théologie, le droit, la médecine et les arts sont enseignés, en plein air, à des jeunes gens venant des 4 Nations (Française, Picarde, Normande et Anglaise) lui conférant, dès l'origine, un prestige international...
