Brazil remains one of the world’s largest international student source countries with over 40,000 Brazilian tertiary students studying abroad annually, and many more enrolled in language or secondary programs. Despite reported political unrest and economic difficulties, the Brazilian Real appreciated against the US Dollar more than any other currency from March 2016 to February 2017, making studying abroad even more affordable. Combined with a deeply-rooted tradition for overseas study, and an unwavering passion and curiosity for all things international, the Brazilian market remains one of the most sought after for foreign universities.
FPP has been organizing Student Fairs in Brazil semi-annually since 2001. These Fairs have grown to become the largest in terms of exhibitor numbers and cities visited per year, and are renowned for attracting high-quality students. FPP’s events in Brazil are now the only students fairs supported by BELTA, (Brazilian Educational & Language Travel Association). In addition, EduCanada and Education New Zealand continue to entrust FPP to organize their official Brazil Fairs.

Why Recruit in Brazil?

Brazil remains one of the world’s largest international student source countries with over 40,000 Brazilian tertiary students studying abroad annually, and many more enrolled in language or secondary programs. Despite reported political unrest and economic difficulties, the Brazilian Real appreciated against the US Dollar more than any other currency from March 2016 to February 2017, making studying abroad even more affordable. Combined with a deeply-rooted tradition for overseas study, and an unwavering passion and curiosity for all things international, the Brazilian market remains one of the most sought after for foreign universities.

Recently, the Brazilian government introduced a set of measures to improve the country’s educational performance, including directing 10% of the country’s GDP to education. Further the number of students attending private schools has increased dramatically, as parents ensure that their child is receiving a high level of education, learning in small classes with better 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 2016 Olympics, the desire and intention for Brazilian students to study and travel abroad is stronger than ever before.

"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
Australian Centre (Brazil, Colombia, Australia)

"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
Hello Study (Brazil & Australia)

"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."
