"I’m so glad I was able to come to Kobe, Japan. I’ve been able to make so many new friends and experience so many new things that I would have never had the chance to do if I had just stayed in the U.S. On top of that, I’ve been able to improve my Japanese, and see my friends who studied abroad at SMU over the years. It truly has been a wonderful experience!" –Jesse

2014 Brazil Cultural Exchange Program

Represent Saint Martin's University in Brazil

Through Saint Martin's University partnership with sister university, CEFET University in Rio de Janeiro, we are able to offer this affordable cultural program where students will have the opportunity to participate in Brazilian cultural classes and activities, meet local Brazilians and experience the sights of Rio de Janeiro!

This program will take place for approximately 10 days in August 2014. Students will stay in Rio where they’ll take basic Portuguese language and culture classes as well as experience vibrant parts of Brazilian life, such as Samba, soccer and Capoeira. They will also visit culturally significant areas such as the Corcovado and Sugar Loaf Mountain.

This is currently a not-for-credit program and participants are responsible for round-trip airfare, program fees, and spending money.

Students will also be required to participate in pre-departure orientations and must have a minimum 2.5 GPA to apply. If you would like to take advantage of this truly incredible opportunity to immerse yourself in the culture of Brazil, please complete the application and return to the Study Abroad Office by January 31.

For more information, please contact Brenda Burns in OIPD.
