  • 24 ECTS (4 days per week)

Two students can work on the same project, report and defense.


ECTS credits 

Studies at INSA Rennes are flexible as the school uses the ECTS (European Credit Transfer System), a European standard for comparing study attainment. When courses are successfully completed, the students earn credits ; the normal total for an INSA student being 30 credits per semester. The student's choice has to be approved by both the home university and INSA. 


Application process

Non-fee-paying semester programs work on the basis of an exchange between the applicant’s home University and INSA Rennes. Therefore, in order for fees to be waived, an agreement (Erasmus or other) must exist.
