Boasting international reach, Rennes in the largest higher education centre in the north-west of France, with 66,000 students. Working closely with businesses and with over 5,000 researchers, this ecosystem fuels high-level research and innovation. In addition, Rennes is just 90 minutes from Paris and less than hour from both Saint-Malo and bay of Mont Saint-Michel.
