The Federal University Toulouse Midi-Pyrénées and Campus France improve their reception arrangement for international students

Campus France and the Federal University Toulouse Midi-Pyrénées asserted their desire to welcome more international people in universities, “grandes écoles” and research organisation in the Occitanie region. A partnership was concluded to provide scholarship recipients supervised by Campus France with a customised Toul’Box pack designed by the Federal University.
