The Buddy Program

The Buddy Program for international students linked to the International Mobility Program aims to promote the integration of foreign students with PUC-Campinas students and the university. The program is a voluntary activity and consists of a rich cultural exchange of experience without leaving the country. It is a huge contribution to development the International Mobility Program and the personal training of the student. Buddies are responsible for assisting foreign students upon their arrival in Brazil, assisting you in whatever you need. .

The buddy should

  • Provide you with basic information about Campinas and PUCCampinas
  • Assist you, when necessary, the installation in housing;
  • Assist with documents and registration with the Federal Police;
  • Assist in conducting registration and enrollment in courses;
