PUC-Rio is a highly ranked research university that provides students with an incredible location near the city's beaches in the residential area in the south foothills of Rio. The campus offers strong courses, small class sizes, laboratories, cafeterias, and libraries. The university consists of four centers with studies in the social sciences, physical sciences and technological studies, the arts, and health sciences. Students will get the opportunity to live in a rented room in a Brazilian household prearranged by PUC-Rio. After the first month you then have the opportunity to explore other housing options.
With both coastal mountains and a beautiful series of bays, Rio de Janeiro is the ideal place to study abroad.
The UCEAP Study Center is located on campus adjacent to the International Students office, and often organizes activities and excursions.
