Purdue University has had a strong relationship with UFV for half a century.  This is a widely known university in Brazil.

For the summer, the majority of each students' studies will be an internship/research lab exerience based on the students' major and area of interest. Students will earn 6 credits with this course. The internship research lab focus areas include agricultural engineering, agronomy, animal sciences, biosystems, and food processing engineering, food science, and veterinary medicine. The program is conducted primarily in English but Portuguese is the language of Brazil. Familiarity with Portuguese is beneficial, but not required of the course. The cost of the program is Purdue's summer tuition and fees, medical insurance (estimated $64), airfare (estimated $800-$1500), room and board (estimated $1200-$1600), passport, and visa.

To study for the semester, instruction is in Portuguese. So Portuguese is required.  www.ufv.br/

Note: Some students may be eligible for a travel grant to support expenses.
