- Attracting visitors from all over the world, São Paulo is a diverse international city, but with its own distinct local flare. With street art on nearly every corner, the city is brimming with creativity, color, and energy.
- Build your Portuguese skills not simply by studying the language but by exploring the history, culture, literature and identity of the people of Brazil.
- Today, FAAP is considered one of the most important and respected academic and cultural institutions in Brazil, giving you access to high quality faculty and world-class facilities.
- Take part in the city’s most popular sport by joining a futebol (or soccer) team and competing with natives who live and breathe the sport. Or have an out-of-the-box experience by participating in the brand-new sport of beach tennis, a mixture of beach volleyball, tennis, and badminton (available to play on one of the on-campus sand courts).
With a population of almost 12 million inhabitants that are made up of over 70 nationalities, São Paulo is an international city that offers diversity, vibrancy, and culture. Experience dancing the Samba during Carnaval, strut the runway at the São Paulo Fashion Week, or show your pride at the largest Pride parade in the world.
What We Love About FAAP
Located in Higienópolis, one of the most traditional districts of São Paulo, Fundação Armando Alvares Penteado is one of the most prominent institutions promoting arts and culture in the region. We particularly love this program because of the on-campus access to artistic opportunities like the Brazilian Art Museum, the FAAP Theater, and workshops on wood, metal, jewelry-making, and more.
