    PROGRAM OVERVIEW
  The Dickinson in France program gives students the opportunity to live and study in Toulouse, known as one of France's most youthful cities because of its vibrant student population. In addition to taking courses at the Dickinson Centre that focus on the development of intercultural competence, students may study in their chosen discipline at one of five local universities. While in the Toulouse program, participants live with home-stay families, enjoy academic excursions to sites of regional and national interest and may undertake internships in various environments thanks to our established professional network. Study in Paris, France and experience the diversity of enduring and dynamic cultural practices and the people who live and negotiate them in daily expressions of pluralism.

    LOCATION
  Toulouse, France
Dickinson College’s program is located at the University of Toulouse. The city of Toulouse is noted for its many pink brick buildings, earning it the nickname “la ville rose.” Situated in the heart of southwestern France, two hours from the Mediterranean Sea and two and one-half hours from the Atlantic Ocean, Toulouse lies just north of the Pyrenees Mountains on the Garonne River. In a recent survey, French citizens rated it the city in which they would most like to live (excluding Paris), based upon quality of life. The University is the second-largest in the country and was built in the thirteenth century.

 
    STUDENT LIFE
  Housing: To ensure that they experience local culture to the fullest, students on the Toulouse program are housed with French families.

Student Life: Academic excursions and cultural events enrich the program. Students visit such sites as medieval cities like Carcassonne, medieval ruins like the Cathar castles, Romanesque churches and monasteries, fortified villages, as well as prehistoric caves. Toulouse offers a wide range of cultural activities such as movies, theater, concerts, opera, ballet, and clubs, as well as opportunities for private travel in France and Europe.

On-Site Support: The Dickinson College Toulouse Program has its own resident director who oversees the staff, plans and leads the academic program, advises students and teaches.

 
    OTHER INFORMATION
  Estimated Program Price: When you study abroad for a semester or a year for academic credit, you will be charged tuition by Washington University at a rate equivalent to tuition on campus for the corresponding time period. WU tuition covers only the educational and administrative costs of the study abroad program.  WU tuition does not cover any study abroad program costs for room, board, transportation, personal expenses, passport or visa fees.  Such costs are charged separately either by WU, the program sponsor, or a third party.
