Get picked from the airport or train station by the WELL'COME association in Rennes
Rennes School of Business is eager to make sure that your first steps in Rennes will not be a source of stress! Therefore, we have entrusted one of our student associations with the mission of organising your pick-up.
This association is called Well’come and is run by French students from the Programme Grande Ecole (MIM) together with international students from MIM or MSc programmes.
Among their many activities, the Well’come team is responsible for organising your arrival and picking you up at the airport or train station in Rennes. The students will reach out to you by email a few weeks before the start of your programme to ask you for your travel details.
Getting to the Paris campus
There is no individual pick-up service for Paris campus students, but below you will find all the information you need to get around Paris.
The first time you arrive in Paris, taking an official taxi to go directly to your accommodation with your heavy luggage might be the easiest option.
Getting Around Paris
You can find a lot of online resources to help you understand the public transport system in Paris.
If you have a smartphone, it's a good idea to download the “City Mapper” app. on your phone as well as the “RATP” app (RATP has a convenient offline map to help you get around even if you don't have WiFi).
Both of these apps provide you with the best routes and shortest travel times. More information here: RATP
