PONTIFICIA UNIVERSIDADE CATOLICA DO RIO DE JANEIRO

 

The Pontificia Universidade Catolica do Rio de Janiero (PUC-Rio) offers UT students an excellent opportunity to take a variety of regular university courses, taught in Portuguese, alongside local students. Pre-term intensive Portuguese classes are available so that students can improve their language skills prior to beginning regular classes.

The city of Rio de Janeiro, nicknamed "The Marvelous City," is known for its beautiful beaches and breathtaking views from the lookout points at the Christ the Redeemer statue and the Sugarloaf mountain.

Participants earn regular UT in-residence credit. All grades earned for the courses taken are computed into the official UT Austin GPA, just as they would be for grades earned in courses taken on campus.
