UFMG Summer School on Brazilian Studies intends to give students from all over the world an understanding of key aspects of Brazil from distinct perspectives.

Over two weeks of intense learning, meetings will cover the underpinnings of Brazilian politics, history, foreign relations, geography, law, economy, arts and culture.

In previous years, this Summer School took place on the main campus of UFMG in Belo Horizonte – the capital city of the federal state of Minas Gerais – in the second half of July. In 2020 and 2021, due to the current circumstances, we adapted the course to take place entirely online, also in July.
