Welcoming events

Whether you are a new student straight out of high school / year 12 or a returning student, reception services are for you.

For many years now, Brest has been welcoming its students.

To show them how much they are valued here and to help them discover all of the assets this territory has to offer, every start of a new school year is subject to careful and rich programming.

Brest accueille ses étudiants


It is a well-established tradition in most higher education institutions: integration parties, or even integration weekends (sometimes even both!) are on the agenda for newcomers, often thanks to the personal investment of more senior students. Greeting of students by their peers is an excellent way to connect and of course, to pass on, the “en off ” information from one generation of students to another.

Greeting international students

The Brest population are travelers, but they also like to welcome travelers from all over the world. To be up to the task and to give international students the feeling of being as much a part of Brest as its natives, events are specifically dedicated to them (in addition to the other events to which they are obviously warmly encouraged to participate!).

Among these events, we can mention a welcome day in September, consisting of an outing at sea followed by a reception at the Carène, as well as the “Nuit des Étudiants du Monde” (World Student Night) at the Capucins, in October.

Finally, the CROUS has written a manual for them, to help them land smoothly.
