Toulouse Midi-Pyrénées Federal University comprises 4 Universities, 12
engineering and specialised schools and 6 national research bodies.
Together, its institutions deliver over 500 qualifications in all disciplines.
Almost 14% of their 112,398 students come from abroad, following their
courses in French or English.
Beyond its active commitment to its members’ academic success as
expressed by promotion of research carried out, visibility on the international scene and coordination of the training offer throughout the site,
the Federal University is well aware that such success is also very much
dependent on many aspects of non-academic life. Which is why we have
developed ever-increasing numbers of services designed for students
over the past ten or more years. Whether it’s a question of advice on
finding the right accommodation, expert opinions on foreigners’ rights,
promotion of student cultural initiatives or general assistance with settling into student life, the Federal University seeks to meet expressed
needs through schemes complementing those on offer from its component institutions and the Midi-Pyrénées Crous.
It is in this context that we created the “Toul’Box” in 2014, that Student
Week celebrated its 10th birthday in 2015, and that we opened the Accueil Welcome Desk the same year. This unique amenity located alongside the Botanical Garden incorporates the Haute-Garonne Prefecture’s
student immigration services (student office open from September to
December), the Haute-Garonne CAF (student reception) and an annex of
the Midi-Pyrénées Crous.
The multilingual team responsible for general reception will provide you
with information on the best offers to students on the part of a wide
variety of partners, including the OFII, the Inter-University Service for
Preventive Medicine and Promotion of Health (SIMPPS), the CRIJ, the
Languedoc-Roussillon-Midi-Pyrénées Regional Council, Toulouse City
Hall, the SNCF, TISSEO and student associations.
Its first 22,600 visitors between September and December more than
confirmed the facility’s usefulness. We are now set on improving it further and developing still more offers in line with your expectations, including support for student initiatives, advice on international mobility,
language cafés and flat-sharing encounters.
I very much look forward to meeting you there !

BECOME A STUDENT ENTREPRENEUR: THE “ECRIN” SCHEME
ECRIN is a scheme for promoting entrepreneurial culture in higher education in Midi-Pyrénées, covering startup or takeover of enterprises, freelance entrepreneurship, the liberal
professions, social entrepreneurship and entrepreneurship in existing organisations.
Promoted by the Toulouse Midi-Pyrénées Federal University’s Community of Universities and

universities’, schools’ and stakeholders’ commitment to ongoing awareness-raising and
training on company creation through strengthening existing initiatives and motivating
new crosscutting projects.
PEPITE ECRIN encourages and assists students
and young graduates who wish to develop a
project bearing on creation of an activity (enterprise, association, etc.).
It organises and lends its support to numerous
awareness-raising and entrepreneurship training events throughout the year.
It is also responsible for assisting student
entrepreneurs in the context of National
Student Entrepreneur Status and the related
qualification, launched by the government in
The PEPITE ECRIN scheme is intended for all
students and young graduates, whatever their
study paths or specialisations.

MONTAUBAN AND TARN-ET-GARONNE
Also known as the “City of Ingres”, Montauban is famed as the birthplace of one
of the 19th century’s greatest painters,
Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres, and the
sculptor Antoine Bourdelle. A city of art
as well as being the Midi-Pyrénées Region’s second activity cluster, Montauban
and the département of Tarn-et-Garonne
provide students with a choice of over 40
programmes, from Bachelor’s degrees to
Master’s via BTS and Vocational degrees.
A city of Art and History and the département
of Lot’s administrative centre, Cahors boasts
an outstanding heritage and a wide range of
local amenities that make it an ideal living and
studying environment. Development of higher
educational and research programmes has continued since the opening of Toulouse-Jean Jaurès
University’s Heritage Cluster, complementing an
already wide offer that includes the IFSI, ESPE,
Lycée des Territoires, CCI du Lot and a choice of
general and technological lycées. Further dynamism is injected into student life by a local
facilitator whose job it is to provide students
with advice and help them with their projects
(Facebook page: Vie Etudiante Cahors).
Less than an hour from Toulouse, Gascony’s capital and its conurbation provide a
choice environment for anyone desirous
of studying under optimal conditions. An
attractive range of rental housing to take
care of accommodation needs, modern
premises and facilities for all its higher
education institutions, a rich and varied
cultural offer, outstanding historical heritage and a safe living environment all
go to make Auch and its conurbation a
destination of choice for those of the Region’s students, who wish to prepare for
their professional futures under the best
Thanks to the wide choice of courses on offer (DUT, BTS, Preparatory classes, Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees, Doctorates,
etc.), Tarbes is ranked as the Midi-Pyrénées
Region’s 2nd university cluster (www.cutp.
net). The Tarbes conurbation, set between
plains, ocean and mountains, is a major
centre for research activities. Halfway
between Toulouse and the Atlantic coast,
the city lies at the feet of the Pyrenees less
than half an hour from the Region’s winter
The Foix and Ariège University Centre takes in
students from throughout France as well as from
abroad, providing a range of widely recognised
specialised vocational training courses on territorial development, sustainable tourism, heritage,
and in preparation for careers in education. Thanks
to the ongoing key support of Ariège and Foix General Council, students and teachers alike enjoy a
first-rate working environment.
Located in the heart of this popular tourist town, Figeac’s UIT (430 students) has
gained a wide reputation for the quality of
its student life (free transport and spacious,
affordable accommodation) and comprises
3 educational departments : Mechanical
Engineering and Computer-integrated Manufacturing (1 DUT and 2 Vocational Degrees);
Marketing Techniques (1 DUT and 2 Vocational
Degrees); and Social Careers, option Social
and Sociocultural Facilitation (1 DUT).
Located less than two hours from Montpellier
and Toulouse, Rodez provides over 3000 students with a range of 2- to 5-year educational
programmes, with 70 courses dispensed in a
total of 9 institutions including the UIT (UT1
Capitole) and Champollion University Institute.
In addition, the town ensures that its students
enjoy a pleasant living environment with a wide
selection of sporting, cultural and festive activities to choose from.

Inscribed on UNESCO’s World Heritage List in 2010,
Albi is developing rapidly. Boasting a listed city
centre, it provides quality town planning combining
the integrity of an episcopal city, its urban heart
centred around the unique rose-pink brick edifice of
Sainte-Cécile Cathedral with that of a living environment where everything can be accomplished on foot.
A city with a love of sports and a flourishing community
life, it is hardly surprising that so many higher education institutions have located there, including the
Champollion University Institute, the School of Mines,
ESPE and Paul Sabatier.
The city of Millau has a rich and varied historical and
architectural heritage. Prehistoric dolmens distributed on the Causses and the crossing bridge Tarn are
symbolising the Middle Ages city. Skin and glove mono
industry embodies the contemporary mentality period.
The viaduct, completed in 2004, finally reminds that
Millau has always been located on a major communication route.
Ranked as “the best city in France to study
in” by a variety of surveys, Toulouse has seen
remarkable demographic and economic development over recent years that have succeeded
in turning it into a metropolis of international
standing. “The Pink City” has also been the
scene of a major artistic resurgence making the
utmost of its rich and varied cultural heritage.
Today, Toulouse accommodates 91% of Midi-Pyrénées students and most of the Region’s research laboratories – a concentration of higher
education and research activities that mirrors
its economic prowess.
The city of Castres combines the traditional
knowhow of its textile, granite and wood industries with more recent activities including
mechanical engineering, pharmaceuticals
and cosmetology (Pierre Fabre Laboratories).
Castres is also a garrison town and famed for its
rugby club. For several years now, the city has
been busy developing a top-level higher education cluster that includes Champollion National
University Institute, “A” Paul Sabatier UIT and the
Nursing Care Training Institute (IFSI).

L’accueil Welcome Desk
Designed to provide students with advice and information on all University
services, this facility combines the missions assigned to the Federal University, the Prefecture (foreign students’ office) and the CAF, both of which have
transferred reception of their student public to a sub-branch of the Crous.
We aim to centralise information, provide
advice to present and future students on the
various aspects of student life, and help them
integrate into the local living environment:
know, for example, where and how to look for
accommodation, find out about cultural offers
and recommendations or get support for their
community projects, who to contact to find
work or become a student entrepreneur, how
take good care of their health and how to find
out about transport offers, sports activities,
and so on.
It’s also here that beneficiaries of offers provided by the various missions (Toul’Box, accommodation, student initiatives, etc.) receive
a warm welcome from our multilingual teams
and that the cartography of educational programmes on offer at University institutions
and Grandes Ecoles may be consulted.
In order to provide you with the best possible
help, our teams work in partnership with the
various student life interlocutors at the Midi-Pyrénées Region’s educational institutions,
as well as well as such complementary bodies
as the SNCF, housing associations, OFII, Campus
France, the City Hall, Metropole and Regional
Council, CRIJ, AFEV, and student associations.
Development of a variety of service projects is
underway (including flat-sharing encounters,
advice on outward mobility, and language
cafes), designed to round out the current offer.
This fresh impetus has been further galvanized
by the opening of the Quai des Savoirs and the
Café du Quai, of which the Federal University
is a partnere.

Health cover comprises two types of insurance :
“Social Security” cover, compulsory except for PUM (Protection Universelle Maladie) beneficiaries – www.ameli.frwww.ameli.fr
Complementary insurance, not compulsory but strongly recommended; on offer from a range of
complementary mutual benefit associations
Compulsory insurance is managed by two dedicated bodies, LMDE and VITTAVI-Réseau
Emevia. Subscriptions are paid upon enrolment at the institution (€215 for the academic year
2015/2016), free for students under 20 years of age whose parents live in France, and for
Crous social criteria grant holders.
Please note : Social Security reimburses a maximum of 70% of medical expenses, subject to their
declaration by the treating physician.
Complementary health insurance may be taken out with the LMDE or VITTAVI-réseau Emevia, and is also provided by a wide range of mutual benefit societies. Some students can also
continue to come under their parents’ complementary health insurance during their studies.
