Brazil’s student recruitment market
* The demand for quality university education in Brazil is far greater that the supply. The best chances of furthering education are more likely to be found abroad.
* Brazil is known for its quality secondary and tertiary education. 6,3% of GDP is spent on education. This is well above the OECD average.
* Brazilian students are highly mobile. Studying abroad and traveling are part of the culture. Many Brazilians have a second (mostly European) passport.
* The Brazilian government has set up a formidable scholarship program (PEC-G) that has already enabled over 10,000 students to study abroad (degree seeking and exchange)
