TO GO OR NOT TO GO?
Winter Session dates
The Winter Session starts on Monday 10th to Friday 21st January 2022.
Classes in Rennes start on Monday 24th January 2022 whether you participate in the Winter Session or not. If you decide not to go, you will attend the course during the Spring semester.
The course will be taught by one professor from Rennes SB and one professor from the welcoming institution (1 week each).
Whether you take the course during the Winter Session or at Rennes SB, it will be the same content.
You will be assessed during the Winter Session (assessed quizzes) and you will have to attend your final exam in April, at Rennes SB.
Two group leaders are to be nominated for each destination as contact people during the 2 weeks.
Once you have confirmed your participation in the Winter Session, cancellation is no longer possible. If you cancel, you will get a FAIL* for the module.
*Cf MSc student handbook to know the consequences if you get an F grade.
Accommodation is booked and paid by Rennes SB for all participating students from 9th to 22nd January (hotel, hostel, or residence), breakfast included but you will have to pay for your own meals (lunch, dinner & extras). Make sure you can afford it!
The budget has to be taken into consideration! Transportation is to be booked and paid for by the students (to go to the Partner University and to get around in the city during your stay).
In compliance with international travel restrictions and our university partner rules, you need to be able to provide proof of vaccination status before traveling abroad.
