IH Toulouse

Toulouse, France

The IH Toulouse centre is located in the Blagnac area of Toulouse, near the airport and many big companies such as Airbus. The school is set on a quiet, leafy road; a quick drive or tram ride away from the centre of the city. 

It has been a busy few years for the school: moving to new premises and increasing their numbers of students and staff.

Life in and around Toulouse

Toulouse is known as the ‘pink city’ – why? Because many of the buildings are made of red brick and when the sun sets the buildings glow a beautiful pink colour. It’s magnificent.

Toulouse is a small but vibrant city. It has a laid-back, friendly atmosphere and a huge student population. The centre of Toulouse is a wonderful place to stroll about. You can walk by the river, visit the main square, relax in a park such as the jardin des plantes. There are many lovely restaurants and bars in town, where you can enjoy a coffee or a beer and watch the world go by.

The locals say it is the best city to live in in France as it is located between the Mediterranean and Atlantic, but it is also near the Pyrenees.

Studying at IH Toulouse

The school is located very close to the airport (just a five-minute drive). There are many direct flights from Europe to Toulouse-Blagnac airport. You can also easily reach Toulouse by train. There is a large station (Matabiau) in the centre of the city.

The school is well-connected by public transport. The nearest tram stop (which goes to the centre of the city and also connects to the underground lines) is a three-minute walk away. It takes 30-40 minutes to get from the school to the centre of the city by tram. If you want to bring a car, the school also has a car park.

There is a very big shopping centre just a 20-minute walk away, where you can find lots of cafes and restaurants. In the centre of Toulouse, you will have the full spread of French cuisine to choose from!  To give you an idea of prices, a kilo of oranges in market or supermarket will cost about €2, a Big Mac Meal €8, and a bottle of beer in a local bar €4. We are sure you'll want to try our local food, but this just gives you an idea!


Most students find accommodation via Airbnb or Roomlala. If you prefer to stay with a host family it will give you a very affordable option, and lets you experience French family life. We can give you advice on these options, but we leave all the details to you.
