We support research productivity through generous incentives and infrastructure. Teaching load is similar or better compared to similar research universities and can be done entirely in English. A new campus in Paris increases our geographical reach. We also assist in relocation and housing search, offer French language courses, and provide extensive benefits, including health insurance and private pension contributions.

Our main campus is Rennes, the capital of Brittany in France, a green city with a fabled history. Located just an hour from the Atlantic coast and less than two hours from Paris, the city has excellent international schools, cultural and natural attractions, and a growing technology and entrepreneurial ecosystem.
