The Erasmus+ Programme
The Erasmus+ Programme is integral to the international component of the university's overall strategy, which is closely linked to the priorities of the European Education Area and the expansion of international mobility.
This programme helps to implement the institutional strategy to modernise our university, as the programme's actions help to strengthen and develop cooperation at European and international level, and provide both students and staff with the opportunity to gain international experience.
Each year, more than 350 students from the University of Rennes benefit from an Erasmus+ scholarship, and about fifty staff members are part of a mobility programme. The University of Rennes has set itself the objective of increasing physical, virtual or blended mobility by 50% over the next seven years, an objective which is also at the heart of the European University EDUC project.
Our university is also pursuing the development of synergy between teaching, research and innovation, notably through the actions of the European University EDUC and the KA3 project "Online Pedagogical Resources for European Universities".
At local level, in order to promote dialogue between the academic world, civil society and political decision-makers, and to raise awareness of European issues among students, the University of Rennes continues to be involved in the Jean Monnet Actions programme.
Erasmus+ International Credit Mobility Programme
The University of Rennes has been selected for funding under the Erasmus+ International Credit Mobility (ICM) programme. The programme aims to promote international exchanges between higher education institutions for students and university staff (both teaching and administrative).
