International Student Welcome

The Centre de Mobilité Intérnationale de Rennes (CMI) has organised several events to welcome international students from CMI Rennes member institutions and provides them with help in the initial stages of student life:

  • From 28 August 2017 onwards in the CMI Rennes, and in partnership with the Prefecture d'Ille-et-Vilaine, a Welcome and Residence permit desk will be available for students requiring a residence permit, or its renewal.
  • An International Students Day - a welcome and information session for international students, PhD students and researchers - will be held on Thursday 7 September 2017 from 2pm to 6pm at the international residence Paul Ricœur. The session will be followed at 7pm by a dinner at the Le Fougères university cafeteria offered by the CMI Rennes and a welcome party organised by the Erasmus Student Network (ESN) Rennes.
  • A football tournament, the International Student World Cup, will be held on Saturday 7 October 2017. The event is organised by the CMI Rennes and the Service Interuniversaire des Activités Physiques et Sportives (SIUAPS) in partnership with the Stade Rennais F.C.

On Saturday 16 September 2017, students are invited to bring a sandwich to the Thabor park where the ESN Rennes is organising a picnic and games.

A welcome reception will be held at the Town Hall on Wednesday 20 September 2017 at 6pm.

The TAM-TAM welcome festival, organised by the Centre Régional Information Jeunesse de Bretagne (CRIJ) and Rennes Town Hall, will take place on 27 and 28 September 2017.
