ABOUT THIS PROGRAM
The French and Italian Department offers a language study abroad program in Toulouse, France that coincides with the French advanced language study abroad. The program is affiliated with the University of Toulouse in the southwest of France at the foot of the Pyrenees.
Toulouse, the fourth-largest city in France, is known for its remarkable Medieval and Renaissance architecture. Students may take advantage of the rich cultural, political, and historical offerings of this exciting city of 600,000 inhabitants, located in the Midi-Pyrénées region of the South of France. It is well known for its remarkable monuments and its world-famous companies (Concorde, Airbus, Spot, Aerospatiale, etc.) Culture is a keyword in "la ville rose", as it is known because of its red-brick buildings, making it a vibrant city enlivened by dance, theater, and concerts by the "orchestre du capitole".
THE STUDY ABROAD EXPERIENCE
Students live with homestay families.

Tuition and Fees
The fees charged by the College for a Dartmouth-sponsored off-campus term of study include regular tuition charges for a term at Dartmouth, service fees, as well as the specific costs established for each off-campus study locale. In many programs, the room and board costs tend to be higher than for a term in Hanover. You can view a budget sheet for each program by clicking on the appropriate term. The cost of transportation to and from the site is the responsibility of the student.
In order that all qualified Dartmouth undergraduate students may have the opportunity to take part in off-campus programs, the College endeavors to adjust its normal financial aid awards for students already receiving aid. Tuition and expected family contribution for Dartmouth's off-campus programs are the same as for an on-campus term. Assistance is available to meet extra costs associated with off-campus programs, including airfare. Half of any extra cost is met with additional Dartmouth scholarship; loan assistance is offered for the other half. Loan assistance is also offered to replace the employment that would normally be included in an on-campus term. Although financial aid recipients are given aid to cover all of the required costs of the program, students are responsible for purchasing their own plane ticket and, on some programs, meals. Often this means that part of the expected family contribution is used towards these costs rather than for tuition.
