Brittany’s capital came in fourth place in L'Etudiant's 2019-2020 student city rankings for a whole host of reasons, including its dynamic jobs market, low unemployment rates and growing student population. For its students, Rennes has even introduced a scheme called Sortir! which features a special online portal and three days of events to welcome them to the city. The Rennes School of Business community, from the staff to clubs and the student union, makes a point of personally welcoming its incoming French and international students at the start of each academic year.
The city is easy to travel around thanks to its excellent public transport network, which includes a metro and bus links. Unlike many business schools, Rennes School of Business’ campus has the advantage of being in the city itself, rather than on the outskirts. The city center is thus just a 10-minute bus ride from campus. With its 600 km of cycle paths and Vélostar bike hire scheme, Rennes has opted for environmentally friendly mobility options, with special discounts for students. All of these initiatives have helped to make Rennes France’s third most bike-friendly city (according to the Palmarès des Villes Cyclables en France).
