the following web site.
It is not possible to buy bus tickets at the train station. The fare for a trip (including connection and/or return trip within the hour) is 1.05 €, and you can buy the ticket directly in the bus. The other solution is to buy a card for 10 trips for 9.10 € or 10 trips within 7 days for 7.30 €. You can buy these cards in a tobacconist/newsagents (there is one near the train station: on the trip from the station to the nearest 8 bus stop).
The bus stop nearest to the train station is located at "Place Jourdan". You just have to leave the train station by the main exit and follow the right-hand side of the railway tracks (direction Paris-Toulouse) until they go under a tunnel. Then you are at Place Jourdan, and you just have to cross the two streets on your right. A pharmacy is on the corner and the bus stop is just alongside it.
There is a bus every 10 minutes. You must take the "Maréchal Joffre" direction. The bus stop to get off at is called " Faculté des Sciences". Be aware that there are no maps inside the bus.
