Testimonials Brazil is a wonderful country and USP is one of the best universities.

New friendships I was admitted to the Obstetrics program at the Universidade de São Paulo via an agreement between Brazil and my home country, Cape Verde, under the auspices of the Program for Partner Undergraduate Students. Our first days of classes were great, because we were the first and only Africans from Cape Verde to come to study at USP/EACH (School of Arts, Sciences and Humanities). Everyone was curious to meet us and to learn about life in our country. I ended up meeting most of the students in the college, and they were all really cool, receptive, nice and friendly.

Enjoy your exchange program to the max, you won’t regret it.

Culture and Diversity I have been studying anthropology for two semesters at USP as an exchange student. Studying and living here has changed the way I see Brazil. I liked the university from the very beginning and here I have the opportunity to interact with people from different nationalities, allowing me to acquire new knowledge and broaden my worldview. Markets on weekends, “sambas” that take place in the city, great parties, exhibitions, displays… São Paulo is a city where you always find something going on, there’s always something to do, you just have to stay tuned in.
