Mobility for Graduate Students

 

The students from universities that have agreements* with the University of São Paulo School of Education (FEUSP) may participate in the mobility program in the field of Education. For graduates, we have both the Master and the Doctoral Degrees in Education.

Students are allowed to attend courses at School of Education/USP for one or two semesters, which can be further extended up to two more semesters if authorized by both the foreign institution and FEUSP. Students can obtain credits or conduct research valid to their Home Institution.

*For graduate student internships, it is not necessary for institutions to establish an international academic agreement.

Most graduate classes at FEUSP  are delivered in Portuguese, so we require exchange students to have a good knowledge of the language. Despite of this we do not require a proficiency certificate.

1 – Mobility of graduate students

In order to study at the School of Education, the Home University has to recommend  students through its International Office. The deadline for applications is June 15th (for courses beginning in August and finishing in December) and November 15th (for courses beginning in February and finishing in June).
