INTERACTION IN FOREIGN LANGUAGES AT FEUSP

All undergraduate classes and most graduate classes are delivered in Portuguese, but we have Faculty members who speak other languages and can assist students while they are adapting to our Academic life and Culture.

ACCOMODATION, DINING PLAN AND CAMPUS LIFE

University of São Paulo does not have accommodation for foreign students, but it has a dining plan for all the students enrolled, with meals offered at a very low price (Breakfast: R$ 0.50, Lunch/Dinner: R$ 2.00 each).

Students can also use the campus bus service freely provided they have the BUSP card.

Student volunteers who participate in the USP ifriends program may also help foreign students with different activities around the city.
