Student Reviews

Paul Sabatier University
Clement MIALHES rated 4 out of 5 stars

Very in-depth and complete courses. Broad choice if you want practice a sport. The Campus is huge. Toulouse is the European capital in aviation and space, so we often have conferences with scientist speakers. Qualified teacher (often teachers are also researchers). We have associations in all areas (sport, party, debate, project....).

Would recommend this uni for biology
Kalliopi Kotrokoi rated 4 out of 5 stars

It was a really hard year with online teaching. A lot of students gave up, I would say even some teachers. I didn't like the fact that in some classes we didn't have the lessons written but had to write it ourselves through CMs. With that method, if you lose one class, you're totally lost, so for me that sucks. Overall however, the quality of lessons is pretty decent.
