Willing to welcome talented international students regardless of their social background, Université de Rennes 1 has implemented a proactive policy to grant partial exemptions to a large number of candidates.

A dedicated commission will examine the academic background of each candidate, and will have the possibility to grant candidates with partial exemptions. This commission has been designed to implement Université de Rennes 1's proactive international policy by strengthening historical ties with specific geografical areas, reinforcing relations with the French-speaking world and recognizing outstanding academic results.

Besides, Université de Rennes 1 proposes each year scholarships throught its Foundation "Progress, Innitiate, Innovate"
