Brazilian Buddy

In order to promote integration between the community and exchange students, Univates offers the Brazilian Buddy program. For each student is assigned at least one buddy, aiming a cultural exchange and improvement of the Portuguese language.

The “Brazilian Buddy” will be assigned to help you on everything you need, like:

  • Joining a group of students from your very first day at Lajeado;
  • Taking part in several events at the university;
  • Guiding you on a tour around the campus and the surroundings;
  • Showing you our culture and brazilian lifestyle;
  • Facilitating on and off-campus social activities.

Your “buddy” will be available during all the period you will stay with us. We are absolutely sure that he/she will facilitate your life in Lajeado, and will turn this experience into the best one.
