The city of Rennes, the capital of the Brittany region, is ideal for student mobility for a semester or a university year.
City of 210,000 inhabitants, including more than 63,000 students, Rennes has all the advantages of a big city while offering the comfort of life of a city on a human scale. Rennes is also ranked each year among the best cities in France in which to study.
A city of culture and sport, it offers many services: cinemas, sports facilities, libraries, pubs, theatres, restaurants...
Rennes is also ideally located to discover France. With an airport and a train station, it is located 1 ½ hour from Paris by train, and about 1 hour from the coast of Brittany. The city is also close to monuments such as Mont Saint Michel or the Castles of the Loire.
Finally, life in Rennes has many advantages for students: the cost of living (housing, transport...) is much lower than in Paris and many services are available to students: university housing for moderate rent (165 to 250 euros per month), university restaurants (which offer full meals for 3.25 euros (2017-2018 prices)). Public transport is also very developed (metro, night buses, self-service bicycles...).
