There are few places in Europe quite like France’s fourth largest city, where you can immerse yourself in a storied past and French language learning. Courses on international marketing and/or European integration are taught in English at CIEE Toulouse, and complemented with co-curricular activities designed to increase intercultural understanding.
Close to both the ocean and mountains, a favorable year-round climate, and a vibrant art and music scene — it’s no wonder that Toulouse is consistently rated one of the best places to study and live in France. This nexus of ancient and modern worlds is nicknamed the Pink City (la Ville Rose) for its unique architecture of pinkish bricks, but there’s plenty else to marvel at — like one of Europe's oldest universities (Université de Toulouse, established in 1299), two UNESCO World Heritage sites (the Canal Du Midi and the Basilica of St. Sernin), the headquarters of Airbus, the Galileo positioning system, the SPOT satellite system, and the largest space center in Europe.
