Is Rennes a friendly city for students?

Regularly ranked as one of the youngest and most vibrant student cities in France, Rennes welcomes around 70,000 students every year. Locals love to mingle with them in one of the city’s many bars, restaurants and clubs.

What is the weather like in Rennes?

Rennes is located in the northwest of France and has a marine climate. French people usually like to joke about the rainy weather in Brittany… but we only say that to avoid mass tourism on our beautiful sandy beaches in the summer! Life in Rennes

Is it easy to travel from Rennes to other places in France?

Luckily, we have a brand new train station that links Rennes to Paris in just 1h30 by high-speed train. We also have an international airport that travels to numerous destinations in France and Europe.

I don't speak French, is that a problem?

With over 90 nationalities on campus, Rennes SB is the perfect destination for English speakers. Outside the School, you can get by with a few simple phrases like “Bonjourrr”, “Merrrci” or “Galette saucisse, s’il vous plait” (a galette saucisse is a type of traditional street food in Rennes)!
