As an MSc student, Rennes School of Business offers you the opportunity to complete a two-week academic exchange abroad! You have the chance to participate in the Winter Session.
But what is it exactly?
The Winter Session is an optional two-week educational stay abroad in one of our European partner universities. It gives you a chance to discover another European country, another institution and to experience new things. This session is optional, so it's up to you if you would like to participate!
NB: The Winter Session is not part of the programme for INSOFE & Coruña students.
TO GO OR NOT TO GO?
Winter Session dates
The Winter Session takes place from Monday 9th to Friday 20th January 2023.
The course will be taught jointly by a professor from Rennes SB and a professor from the welcoming institution (each professor teaches one week of the session).
The Winter Session course is optional. Therefore, there will be no final exam, and you will receive a certificate of participation at the end, according to your attendance and your participation in the class.
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 (except if you find an internship, in that case, you will have to provide your internship contract as proof). If you cancel, you will be charged accommodation fees (400€/person).
Accommodation is booked and paid for by Rennes SB for all participating students from Sunday 8th to Saturday 21st January (hotel, hostel, or residence). Breakfast is included but you will have to pay for your own meals(lunch, dinner & extras). Make sure that you can afford these expenses before you enroll for the Winter Session!
It is important to take the costs of the Winter Session into consideration! Transportation must be booked and paid for by the students (both to go to the Partner University and to get around in the city during your stay).
