Social Program
Our social programs are divided into regions and LCs, so each one of them will host a social program for the incomings they will be receiving in the same month. Also, we normally have two National Social Program, being one in July and the other in August, our fullest months of the year.
Special Remarks
Application Form
Deadline
16 WEEKS
Special Remarks
The student must choose 3 DIFFERENT CITIES AND PROJECTS, so please have in mind that if you don't do so, we will send your AF back.

If you want to come in July:
You must send your AF and full COD until the first week of February, otherwise your AF will be sent back.

If you want to come in August:
You must send your AF and full COD until the March Meeting (first week of March), otherwise your AF will be sent back.

We do not guarantee you will be assigned to your desired cities or projects, since we have a huge amount of incomings every month, specially for July and August. But don't worry! All of our LCs and projects have a high academic quality and they are all safe, beaufitul and interesting cities spread across Brazil.

IN CASE YOU WANT TO BE ASSIGNED WITH SOMEONE:
Please, put the person's AF number on the Special Remarks as well. Although we do accept to host someone together, we do not guarantee this will happen, due to our LCs capacity and avaliability.

The standard documents are the basic documents that the students are asking for and the special documents are less important, as only some Local Committees ask for them. So it's mandatory to upload the standard documents, but not the special ones. (Students do it when asked for by the LEO/NEO.)
The upon arrival documents are hard copies documents that the students are requested to take with them in the host country.”

Special Remarks

We don't require any Hard Copy documents. They must all be uploaded to the database together with the Application Form (AF).

 

- Students usually stay with host families at Brazilian Medicine students's houses.

 

- Every student will have their Host Student and also a “godfather” or “godmother”, who will help with any issues and do social activities.

- Social programs are offered by all Local Committees (LCs). They're always enthusiastic to show you the best of our country, however, they do their job on voluntary basis, which means they also study and have other obligations. Thus the exchange student should be somewhat independent and not expect a 24 hour day care program.
