Why Recruit in Brazil?

Over 32,000 Brazilian students study abroad at tertiary level annually, with many more going overseas for short-term language courses. Although the economy in Brazil has not been at its strongest in recent times, the intention, expectation, desire and importance of studying abroad has never been more prevalent.

The Brazilian government has introduced a set of measures with the aim of improving the country’s educational performance. This includes directing 10% of the country’s GDP to education. Another initiative launched is the ‘English Without Boarders’ programme, which is supporting university students by improving the quality of English taught in schools. The number of students attending private schools has increased in recent years, as parents ensure that their child is receiving a high level of education and can learn in small class sizes with better quality facilities.

Why are Brazilians going abroad?

Although Brazil boasts 11 of the top 30 universities in the entire region, a relatively small proportion of Brazilian students have access to quality higher education. This is partially due to the number of public universities not meeting demand, with now over 70% of students in post-secondary education enrolled at private institutions. Brazilian students are well-aware that the best chances of furthering their education are more likely to be found abroad.

Studying abroad and international travel are as much a part of the Brazilian culture as samba or the sport of futebol. With Brazil very prominent on the global stage following the hosting of the 2014 World Cup and the upcoming 2016 Olympics, the desire and intention for Brazilian students to study and travel abroad is stronger than ever before.

What our clients say

Watch what our clients say
"FPP is not only the best education fair organizer, but is also an important strategic partner for us. They clearly prioritise customer satisfaction and since we first met them 12 years ago, they have constantly outdone themselves in organizing and managing education fairs.
Since 2014 we have been hiring FPP to organize our own event - AC EXPO - the largest education fair in Brazil for students willing to go to Australian and New Zealand. It has been a real pleasure to work with them and the results have been incontestable. I have no doubt that education providers may accomplish very good ROI after an FPP fair."

Vinicius Barreto

"We have been working with FPP for 8 years. It has been really good working with them, the organisation and quality of students is very good. We recommend FPP and EDUEXPOS."

Vitor Meneghetti

"We’ve been doing FPP for the past four and a half years, because of the quality of students. The number of applications that are converting are really good. It is part of our marketing plan every year now."
