L'Université de Rennes 2 has one of the best international student programs in France, with strong student support to help adjust to the new academic and cultural life. Rennes is rich in tradition and history and is known for its religious art and Celtic mysticism. It has numerous major cultural events to fit student needs: the International Music and Jazz festival, a National Theatre and annual festivals. It is only a 90 minute train ride from Paris. The old European character of the city makes it a comfortable place to live and learn about French culture. Students can easily go by public transportation or on foot from their homes to the university area, to their internship sites and to surrounding shops. Students interested in an internship may be placed with one of several major French companies located in Rennes. Internship positions are available in the business sector and in non-profit organizations. Internship appointments usually require a functional command of French, but companies often want to have students with good English speaking and writing skills. Any formal business courses or job experience will be a great advantage for students entering the corporate world in their future careers.
Costs and Financial Aid
Students pay Nazareth College tuition and retain their full Nazareth financial aid packages (excluding work study).
Students are responsible for paying for on campus room and board.
The Nazareth Rennes Program houses all students with host families in the Rennes area. The family atmosphere provides the best kind of environment to learn the idiomatic spoken language. Students also learn about French culture at meal time and on special family occasions. The commuting distances from the host family homes to the university area are quite reasonable. On campus rooms are also available for Nazareth students for the University’s regular fee.
