An attractive area

The academy of Toulouse is the most attractive in France for young people. It encompasses 10 university cities in 8 departments of France.
Toulouse, the fourth biggest urban area in France for the last 10 years, is:
• the number 1 French city to study in (source: l’Étudiant 2018 ranking)
• the number 1 city in France for job creation: a stimulating environment for success and occupational integration. (source: Insee 2017, Les Echos Start 2017)


Support for Student Initiatives

The Federal University of Toulouse Midi-Pyrénées, in collaboration with the higher education institutions and the Crous (regional student assistance office), offers schemes to support student initiatives, helping them to start an association or set up a project. As soon as a project is completed, the Federal University also provides visibility: every year, around forty projects are featured in two major events: Student Week and the university theatre festival Entre en scène!
