student life

living in Toulouse

The isdaT is located alongside the Garonne River in the historic centre of the city of Toulouse, which is a highly desirable location for higher learning, ranked the 3rd largest student city with over 100 000 students and the first best city to study in of L’Étudiant’s 2018 classification of “good student cities”. A lively hub of arts activities, it provides its students with a multiplicity of resource sites, concert halls, shows, festivals, and exhibitions…


The students of isdaT can apply for scholarships from the CROUS based on social criteria, by constituting their Dossier Social Etudiant (DES or Student Social File) online between January 15 and April 30 prior to the start of the new school year. Since the scholarship is only attributed for one year, it is crucial to enrol each year before April 30.
A national scale is applied, taking into account family resources and expenses.
The level of scholarship varies depending on the 8 levels revised each year by the French Ministry of National Education. The scholarship is awarded for 9 months, from October to June. The payment is monthly (payment at end of month). All necessary information will be provided with the application form and is available for consultation on the CROUS website.

housing support

isdaT students may file a request for student housing with the CROUS, at the time their student social file is compiled. It is compulsory to be a scholarship recipient to be eligible to apply. There are several apartment blocks and university residencies in Toulouse that are managed by the CROUS.

social security

Any student aged under 28 must be covered by student social security once admitted and up until June 30 of the following calendar year. The cost of student social security is therefore added to the school fees. Social security must be paid at the time of enrolment at isdaT in the month of October. Students on scholarships are exonerated from payment of the social security contribution.
Concerning foreign students, they are not required to register for student social security in the following cases:

  • Student of nationality of a member state of the European Union in possession of a private insurance certificate covering the same risks as the general regime of French medical insurance to cover the full academic year;
  • Students of nationality of a member state of the European Union in possession of Form E 128 valid on October 1st of the academic year or holding a European medical insurance card;
  • Student of Quebec nationality in possession of Form SE 401 Q 102 B;
  • Andorran student holding Form SE 130 04;
  • Monegasque student with an approval for coverage delivered by the Monegasque authorities.
