    New friendshipsI was admitted to the Obstetrics program at the Universidade de So Paulo via an agreement between Brazil and my home country, Cape Verde, under the auspices of the Program for Partner Undergraduate Students.Our first days of classes were great, because we were the first and only Africans from Cape Verde to come to study at USP/EACH (School of Arts, Sciences and Humanities). Everyone was curious to meet us and to learn about life in our country. I ended up meeting most of the students in the college, and they were all really cool, receptive, nice and friendly.

    Culture and DiversityI have been studying anthropology for two semesters at USP as an exchange student. Studying and living here has changed the way I see Brazil. I liked the university from the very beginning and here I have the opportunity to interact with people from different nationalities, allowing me to acquire new knowledge and broaden my worldview. Markets on weekends, sambas that take place in the city, great parties, exhibitions, displays So Paulo is a city where you always find something going on, theres always something to do, you just have to stay tuned in.

  • USPs scientific productivity totals an average of over 25 thousand publications per year, including indexed scientific journals, books, reports etc. This represents a significant proportion of the countrys output.

    The university is also concerned with the application of discoveries made by its research centers and laboratories, as well as with the effective transfer of these findings to society in general. For this reason many members of the USP community are in permanent partnership with industries, companies, offices and health centers specialized in the development of projects and products and in the practical application of new technologies and products.

    The university also plays an important role in South America, since it attracts many students, professors and technicians from the neighboring countries and from all parts of the world. USP is an institution that evolves rapidly in its intent towards greater internationalization, which has been accompanied by its ever growing visibility on the world stage. It has signed over a thousandcooperation and exchange agreements with important institutions in the Americas, Africa, Europe, Asia and Oceania, and is constantly working towards increasing this number. The university currently welcomes about 2,200 undergraduate and graduate foreign students per year and sends abroad an even bigger number as part of its student mobility program.
