Gorgeous country with high-quality education
When planning to study abroad most students want not only to get a good education but also have a life-time experience. Brazil is definitely a unique place that can provide both of these things.
The country is the 5th largest in the world by both population and area. It covers almost half of South America with around 4 500 miles of coastline. The nature in Brazil is astonishing. It attracts not only tourists but lots of foreign students every year as well. Two of the most famous natural sights are the Amazon River and Pantanal which is the largest wetland in the world with a great variety of wild animals like the jaguar, the capybara and the caiman.
And, of course, Brazil wouldn’t be Brazil without the famous 130 feet tall statue, Christ The Redeemer which is located in Rio de Janeiro. It is much cheaper to explore South America as flight tickets from, for example, Rio de Janeiro to Argentina or Uruguay are quite affordable. This opens up great chances for students to see more astonishing places on their freetime in South America.
Higher education in Brazil has six categories: universities, university centers, integrated faculties and schools of higher education, institutions and isolated colleges. University centers are autonomous and have a wide range of courses. International students might find interesting options from other kind of institutions as well. Many courses in Brazil are held in Portuguese which means that you have a great chance to learn one of the most spoken languages in the world.
The quality of higher education is monitored every two years. If there are any educational institutes that do not correspond to set regulations and do not follow basic rules, they are taken under control by officials who ensure that improvement is going to happen.
