Cultural Activities

In addition to the academic engagements and class room activities, students attending the Rennes School of Business Summer Programme will also have the opportunity to experience a range of cultural events. Alongside other international students attending the Summer Programme, there is a planned company visit to complement learning with a real-life experience at a French Business. In addition, participations will be invited to a welcome and farewell dinner with other attendees and also have the opportunity to join a guided tour of Rennes.

While staying in Rennes, there will also be the chance to explore this vibrant student city independently. There’s an extensive collection of Fine Arts and antiquities spanning from the 15th century at the Musee des Beaux-Arts; an old town which is home to the 17th century Cathedrale St-Pierre; and Rennes is also home to the former seat of the rebellious Breton parliament, Palais du Parlement de Bretagne – renovated in 2004 after being destroyed by fire started by demonstrating fishermen in 1994. The cultural centre of Rennes, Champs Libres, is home to many key sites of Breton history and culture including exhibitions, museums and culture attractions.
