Location

Partner University:  Toulouse Business School (TBS) is located in the second largest university town in France after Paris.  The school has 71 international partners in 30 different countries and hosts students from at least 20 different nationalities each quarter.  
 
Toulouse (population 770,000), France's fourth largest city, is located in the Midi-Pyrénées region of south-west France, midway between the Atlantic and the Mediterranean. This beautiful city is known for its distinctive rose color brick buildings (hence the nickname: la ville rose) and has a very Mediterranean feel and climate.  Toulouse has long served as a center of commerce, culture and education. The University of Toulouse dates to the 13th century and is the second oldest in France. Today over 100,000 students attend institutions of higher education, including our partner ESC-Toulouse, making the city a highly desirable location for business. The city is now home to Europe's aerospace industry and headquarters for Airbus Industrie. The many high-tech firms in the region complement the area's thriving agri-business.

Passports and Visas

A valid passport is essential to your international travel and study abroad. If you are planning to travel abroad, its best to apply for a passport now as processing times may vary. Please see http://travel.state.gov/content/passports/english/passports.html for more information.

In order to obtain country-specific visa instructions and resources, refer to your host country’s embassy web page. One way to access this information is visa the US Department of State’s webpage at http://travel.state.gov/visa/americans/americans_1252.html

UC International is happy to guide UC faculty, staff and students to possible resources about visas for study abroad. Although, applying for the necessary visa for travel is the responsibility of the individual UC traveler. Entry requirements change frequently and we advise you to pay close information to consular updates. It is your responsibility to knowing and addressing the requirements for your host study abroad destination.

Applying for a visa can be a complicated process. Some UC travelers choose a third party to assist with this process, for example Travisa or A Briggs (mention UC for a possible discount).
