Testimony

I’m really happy to be studying here as I feel it has changed the way I see the world.
Karla Patricia RODRIGUEZ RUIZ, Mexican student

I chose Rennes SB due to the recognition the School enjoys, the academic accreditations it has been awarded, and the international atmosphere it has created within. My decision has been more than justified by the opportunity to learn and study in a place where so many cultures are present and where I can acquire the tools I’ll need for the next steps I’ll take in life. I’m really happy to be studying here as I feel it has changed the way I see the world.
