The PGE programme requires students to obtain a minimum score in one of the following tests:
TOEIC / TOEFL iBT / IELTS
This requirement applies to all students, irrespective of nationality, mother tongue or background (previous studies).
It is part of the cursus for the programme and as such, there are no exceptions to these conditions.
What is the minimum required score?
The minimum required score for each test is:
When must I take the test?
You must obtain the minimum required score during your time as a student at Rennes SB.
For students who joined Rennes SB in the first year of PGE:
Any test taken on or after 1st September of the year you joined the programme can be accepted.
For students who joined Rennes SB in in the second year of PGE (AST2):
