Choice of courses at the Toulouse School of Economics – TSE

In order to prepare the choice of courses before arriving to Toulouse, it is recommended to have a look at the open course lists:

- The open course list 2021-2022 for students who are coming from a TSE partner university
They can follow courses from the first year in “Licence 1 Economie et gestion” to the Master 1 in Economics, international track (syllabi will be available in September). All Master 2 courses are closed to the exchange students.

- The open course list 2021-2022 for exchange students registered at TSM Faculty, the Law Faculty and AES Faculty
Students will only be allowed to follow courses from the first year in our "Licence 1 Economie et Gestion" and from the second year in our "Licence 2 Economie et Gestion" (syllabi will be available in September). These courses are completely taught in French.

A pre-selection on these choices begins before arriving at TSE, notably the requirements in mathematics.

A B2 level in English and/or a B2 level in French is required.

A compulsory information meeting will be held Friday 3rd September (from 2:00pm to 3:30 pm) at our new TSE building Amphitheater A3, ground floor (1 Esplanade de l'Université). In the second semester, there will be no information meeting.
