The Rennes 2 University International Office, in conjunction with the CIREFE and the Espace des langues of Rennes 2 University are pleased to invite administrative and academic staff of our international partners to our next Erasmus + Staff Training Week, to be held from June 24 - 28, 2024.  

Building on the strengths of Rennes 2 as a major center for language-learning in western France, the event will provide participants with the chance to: 

  • improve their French language skills with 16 hours of French language and civilization courses,
  • gain a greater understanding of French culture and take part in numerous cultural outings (including an excursion to the coast of Brittany: Saint Malo, Dinan and Dinard), and
  • participate in game-based learning with an innovative escape game on interculturality (in French) and learn about local Breton culture.

In order to provide the best possible offer, the number of participants will be limited to 20 people maximum, with no more than 2 persons from any individual institution.

Priority will also be given to universities of the EMERGE Consortium (a consortium of European higher education institutions created in 2019 with Rennes 2 as a member), as well as to members of the Wild Atlantic Alliance (WAA). Applications from other partners will also be considered.

Registration information and the week’s program (available in French and English) is available here. The deadline for applications is March 22nd, 2024. 

For any questions, please contact the International Office at: dri-internationalstaffweek [at] univ-rennes2.fr (dri-internationalstaffweek[at]univ-rennes2[dot]fr).
