“It is hard for me to put into words what coming to Brazil meant to me. We all know that going abroad can be a challenging experience, but choosing Brazil and PUCPR is by far the best decision I have ever made. Here I met the most wonderful people and experienced by their side unforgettable moments. The international office and local students welcome you in a way that you won’t even feel the need to miss home. The only though part is that, eventually, the exchange comes to an end. Thank you PUCPR for letting me live this amazing experience.”

I felt indescribable emotions, hard to forget. I thank PUCPR for giving me the opportunity to giving me this experience, each one of you made us grow and taught us something. Thanks”

“Coming to Brazil has been one of the biggest challenges of my life, the difference in language, being far from my everyday life. PUC was a place where I felt at home, I was filled with new experiences, I got in touch with people from all over the world and they also opened the possibility of understanding the Brazilian environment to be able to develop inside and outside of school, without any doubt an incredible experience and only. You will have a great time.”
