UPS is one of the leading French universities, in the quality of its teaching, the breadth of its scientific research and the number of students it attracts. With university courses aligning with European harmonisation of qualifications, professional training attuned to the world of employment and proactive teaching strategies (supervision and tutorial, internships, professional prospects...), UPS is constantly innovating, bringing realism and ambition to the education it provides. Whatever field is chosen: core sciences, life sciences and health, technology, sports or human and social sciences, all courses are available full or part-time. Courses with a professional focus, which are genuine passports to working life, are offered alongside more traditional courses which orient students towards positions in teaching and research. Above all, UPS is committed to the success of its students, who are given guidance in mapping out their future career and the best pattern of education to choose.
As one of the top research establishments in France, UPS is active in public research at the highest level, working with excellence clusters and creating numerous partnerships with major scientific bodies. Recognised across Europe and all over the world, UPS research laboratories function in a scientific research context that works both with the core disciplines, and transversal scientific applications, sharing the results of their work to increase productivity in core research and encourage knowledge transfer.
The links UPS makes with the rest of the world take many forms, both in education and research: partnership with prestigious foreign universities, bilateral research and education agreements, bilingual teaching, developing European (Socrates, Léonardo) and international (Tassep, Crepuq, etc.) mobility programmes. A large number of foreign students come to study at Université Paul Sabatier.
Located in Toulouse (Rangueil, Purpan and Jules-Guesde campuses) and in the Midi-Pyrénées region in Albi, Auch, Castres and Tarbes, as well as at the Pic du Midi, and in Bagnères and Lannemezan, UPS offers diverse patterns of life, fully integrated into the regional context. UPS is the primary descendant of the Université de Toulouse, itself founded in the 13th Century, making Toulouse one of the oldest university towns in Europe, alongside Bologna, Oxford, Paris and Salamanca. Today this major regional capital is France's second largest university town, with 120,000 students. The city (800,000 inhabitants) incorporates a very active scientific and technological cluster and a dense, very animated urban centre. Toulouse is a city of the south, rich in science and technology, but also history culture,, sports and colour. An hour's flight from Paris, Toulouse is perfectly placed, at the foot of the Pyrenees, between the Mediterranean and the Atlantic.
