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! :)

Excellente université

Overall
Excellente université reconnue en France et à l'international. 
La majorité de ses Masters sont reconnus et classés parmi les meilleurs en France et en Europe.
Les cours, notamment en Master, sont à la fois dispensés par des enseignants-chercheurs experts dans leurs domaines, mais aussi par des intervenants professionnels reconnus.
Cela permet d'apporter une dimension concrète aux cours théoriques.
De même, de plus en plus de formations sont dispensées en alternance pour permettre aux jeunes étudiants de se forger une réelle première expérience professionnelle de longue durée et donc significative. Un point extrêmement important, notamment dans la recherche d'un premier emploi.
Ensuite, l'Université dispose de nombreux campus dans Paris (Tolbiac, Sorbonne mère, ...) et donne aussi accès à la plupart des bibliothèques de la capital ! Un avantage très utile pour les recherches, compléter les cours et  pour réaliser les mémoires.

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.

Overall
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.

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...
