Rennes International Mobility Centre (CMI Rennes)
The Rennes International Mobility Centre was created in January 2009 and is part of the Université Bretagne Loire. The CMI Rennes provides support for incoming or outgoing international mobility to different types of end-users:
- Incoming mobility: International undergraduate, graduate and PhD students and researchers in Rennes
- Outgoing mobility: undergraduate and graduate students, PhD students or researchers from higher education institutions in Rennes wanting to go abroad to study or conduct research.
Located in downtown Rennes, they work closely with Rennes 2 and all universities in the area to help facilitate mobility for students and researchers. They also publish very useful guides including: a guide on cultural events in the area, a guide for international students coming to Rennes, as well as a guide for international researchers.
They are also make available the new facility the Cité Internationale de Rennes, which can provide temporary lodging to international researchers and doctoral students (subject to availability).
We would recommend that all students and researchers who are coming to Rennes 2 University review the CMI website for helpful information before their trip.
