Course recommendations
Be aware that in France, at least in public universities like this one, the teaching methods are based on students taking notes in class and then learning them by heart, only to regurgitate as much as they remember for exams... Over the course of my 3-year bachelor, I only bought a handful of books, and these weren't even required reading but only books that I bought on my own initiative. This means that it's exceedingly cheap to study here, but also that you (a) can't skip any classes (or you won't have anything to study for exams!) and (b) if you didn't understand things during class, you have no books to consult... On a more positive note, UT1 has a university library that was completely refurbished in 2002 or so, so it's pretty up to date and has a decently sized collection. Therefore, you can usually get by simply by borrowing books, saving you a lot of money. And if you do end up buying books, then you'll be happy to note that books in France are exceedingly cheap compared to just about any other Western society I can think of. This only goes for French books, though!

Overall
The university is known for the quality of its courses. I've had the opportunity to study there for 3 years now. The administration might take some time to process the inquires. However, the teachers are well qualified, the sites are rich of utilities, and it has an easy access as a plus, since the university is located 200m of the city center, of the beautiful city that is Toulouse.

Très bonne université avec de bons professeurs et un personnel administratif à l'écoute. Cependant, l'enseignement est dispensé de manière exclusivement théorique. Or, comme nous l'ont montré les universités étrangère il y a pleins de façon de faire participer les étudiants et les faire apprendre de manière interactive Ex: Cour fictive, présentation orale, etc.
