Created in 1991, the Rennes Institut d’Etudes Politiques belongs to the Sciences Po network of nine higher education institutes in France. Although the Rennes IEP is officially attached to the Université de Rennes 1, it is administratively and pedagogically independent. Fine professors as well as guest lecturers, top civil servants and business executives teach the carefully selected group of 1,100 IEP students. The IEP takes a pluri-disciplinary approach to studies to provide a solid grounding in general culture, allowing students to choose from a wide range of professions upon graduation. Studying abroad and internships are also part and parcel of the program.See All 4 Photos
