Toulouse is the fourth largest city in France, characterized by a unique architecture (just think of the incredible Capitole) and a nickname that everyone has come to know: the Pink City. This is due to the emblematic pink brick that characterizes most Toulouse buildings. The city is also crossed by the Canal du Midi, a UNESCO heritage site.
From the point of view of education, Toulouse attracts many students especially thanks to its aerospace centre, one of the most renowned in France.
The number of French and international students arriving in the city is constantly increasing! Let’s see together the 3 best universities in Toulouse!
