As an MSc student, Rennes School of Business offers you an opportunity for a two-week academic getaway! You have the chance to participate in the Winter Session. But what is it exactly?
The Winter Session is an optional fortnight-class abroad in one of our European partner universities. It gives you a chance to discover another European country, another institution, and to share life experiences. This event is optional therefore, to go or not to go, it is up to you!
NB: The Winter Session is not part of the INSOFE & Coruña students' programme.
TO GO OR NOT TO GO?
Winter Session dates
The Winter Session starts on Monday 10th to Friday 21st January 2022.
The course will be taught by one professor from Rennes SB and one professor from the welcoming institution (1 week each).
For January intake students, the Winter Session course is optional. Therefore, there will be no final exam, only assessed quizzes during the Winter Session. Your grade will appear as PASS or FAIL on your transcript and it will depend on your quiz results, participation, and attendance to 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 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.
