PROFESSIONAL RECOMMENDATIONS
  • We strongly recommend that you do not book a flight until dates and visas have been established and granted

  • Some countries require a criminal background check for Visa processing.  In some cases this can take over 30 days to be issued by the local authority, so make sure you already have it before applying for the visa!

  • Although Portuguese is not a requirement for joining the program, we encourage that you try to get at least basic knowledge of the language prior to arrival in Brazil.

HOUSING

Should you need our assistance in arranging your in-country accommodations, we facilitate three types of accommodations:

 

 

• Homestay

If you are looking for an immersion in Brazilian culture and experiencing local lifestyles this is the best choice for you!  Brazilian families are open and warm, so be ready to be considered part of the family and experience family events, routine and rules.

 

• Shared Apartment

If you are seeking a more casual environment and prefer staying with other students/young people, we recommend a shared apartment. Your flatmates will either be fellow internationals, studying or working in Brazil, or Brazilian students.  This living environment can help you get to know the best of your surroundings either from the perspective of a local, or, with someone who can join you on your adventures of discovering your new second home!

 

• Rented Apartment

If you are looking to get to know a new culture without giving up your independence and autonomy, Campus B can also help find you an apartment--just for you.  Keep in mind this type of accommodation tends to be significantly more expensive than the other options.
