Rennes 2 University

Rennes 2 University is the largest centre for research and higher education in the fields of human and social sciences in western France.

As one of the major public universities in France almost exclusively devoted to arts, humanities and social sciences, Rennes 2 strives to provide excellence through education and innovation within a dynamic learning environment. The university welcomes more than 24,000 students to its 5 different faculties:

  • Arts, Literature, and Communication
  • Modern Languages
  • Human Sciences
  • Social Sciences
  • Sports Sciences

The main campus is located in the heart of the city Rennes, the capital of picturesque Brittany. The university helps contribute to regional and national dynamism through the variety of its educational offer, research and cultural vitality.

While fostering local cooperation has always been a part of its identity, it also has an increasingly global perspective. With over 3,000 international students and 265 partners worldwide, its students and staff are now, more than ever, creating strong relationships with university and research institutions around the globe. 

Its students also benefit from an exceptional and diversified linguistic offer of 19 foreign languages. Rennes 2 is also home to the premier Centre for the study of French as a foreign-language – the CIREFE.

There is no student association focused on welcoming international students yet.

There is an alumni service organized by the university but no independent association yet.
