About Universities in Brazil for international students
Here are Quick Facts about Higher Education in Brazil;
- Compared to Europe and North America, higher education in Brazil began very late. It wasn’t until around 1808 that the King of Portugal established the first national institutions.
- The University of São Paulo, Brazil’s leading higher education institution, was founded in 1934. It is the highest-ranked university in Latin America. Brazil also has five of the top 10 highest-ranked universities in the Latin American region in 2015.
- Higher education in Brazil is split into three categories: universities, university centers, and integrated faculties, and schools of higher education. Federal and state universities are free for students, but their reputation means it’s fiercely competitive to get a place.
Brazil features more than 20 times in the QS World University Rankings 2018, with its highest-ranked university being the Universidade de São Paulo (USP) in 121st place.
Next is Universidade Estadual De Campinas (UNICAMP) (joint 182nd), which is also based in the São Paulo area. Unsurprisingly, given this strong global presence, Brazil dominates the QS regional rankings for Latin America by notable margins.
In the QS Latin America University Rankings 2018, Brazil claims 83 of the region’s top 400 universities, far more than any other nation in this regard.
