If you would like to undertake one semester of study at INSA-Rennes, there are 3 semesters where all courses are taught in English. These semesters are designed for exchange students at M1 and M2 levels. Our ICT departments have designed a coherent package of credit-earning courses for international students. Exchange students may select other courses on condition that the course is given during the same semester and is compatible with the semester calendar.

- 15 ECTS (2,5 days per week)
- 24 ECTS (4 days per week)
Two students can work on the same project, report and defense.
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.
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.
MATRICULATION FOR A STUDY SEMESTER
French as Foreign Language
A1 level in French is recommended even for programs taught in English. INSA Rennes offers all its non French-speaking students training in French as a Foreign Language (FFL) at a level appropriate to their existing ability (4 ECTS per semester)
