Agrocampus Ouest

Agrocampus Rennes has its origins in the École d'agriculture de Grandjouan (Loire-Atlantique) founded in 1830. Transferred to Rennes in 1896 onto the site it still occupies today, this national agricultural college for engineers has considerably developed its research-focussed scientific teaching over the decades.

Created in 2008, AGROCAMPUS OUEST took over from its two founding institutions, whose origins date back to the 19th century:

  • Agrocampus Rennes (National Institute of Agricultural and Agri-food Higher Education and Research)
  • The Institut national d'horticulture (INH) in Angers


AGROCAMPUS OUEST offers 3 master's degrees exclusively taught in English and offers its master’s students all the advantages of a Grande école, or ‘elite public University-level college’, for life and environmental sciences and technologies:

  • a college on a human scale well connected to the professional sector: in the course of their studies, all students receive support in developing their career plans
  • training backed by cutting-edge research
  • a globally focussed college: over 70 academic partners, 10% foreign students on campuses


The 13 research units (11 of which are under the authority of AGROCAMPUS OUEST, and with 3 of which it is associated) cover the 5 main areas with high application potential that AGROCAMPUS OUEST is keen to develop :

  • Vegetal, animal, systems
  • Environmental issues - resources, territories and urban planning
  • Fisheries science, sea, coastal zones
  • Food science
  • Landscapes
Its 130 research-lecturers conduct academic or applied research, intended to respond in an innovative fashion to current issues in life sciences. Scientific projects are jointly defined with partners.
