Getting involved in opportunities outside of class, particularly for international students, can help to create a sense of community with those around you and facilitate the learning of new strengths and interests. Whether it be participating in student organizations, councils, workshops, or other programs, student involvement is a good way to have fun, learn important skills and even build your resumé.
Below is a small list of organizations that may be of particular interest to international students. A comprehensive list of organizations at Rennes 2 is available on our French website.
Erasmus Student Network (ESN): is a non-profit student network which has established itself as one of the main organizations in Rennes for the integration of international students. Their mission is to represent international students, thus providing opportunities for cultural understanding and self-development under the principle of Students Helping Students. Throughout the year, ESN partners with nightlife actors so that every evening, mobile students have a place to meet and meet other young people from Rennes.Website: http://rennes.ixesn.fr
