Founded in 1976 as a result of the unification of higher education individual institutes distributed in various regions of the most important Brazilian state in economic terms, UNESP offers courses in different areas of theoretical and experimental sciences such as Engineering, Health, Communications, Humanities, Social Sciences, Arts, among others.
The research at Unesp is understood as a key part of our Strategic Internationalization Plan, a document prepared by UNESP's academic community in 2018. Briefly, the Research, the establishment of Partnerships and the development of Global Talents, are elements supported by different "Transversal Topics" and monitored by the development of "Indicators".
The International Relations Office of São Paulo State University gives support to all the internationalization initiatives of the institution and manages the undergraduate exchange programs.
UNESP o"ers housing facilities, but there is a limited number of places. Also, they are mainly destined to low-income students. We encourage students to stay in a “republica” (houses rented by students who share expenses) in order to enhance sociabilization with local students. If you need information about housing, please contact the local international relations o)ce (ERI) at your destination campus.
Unesp is the best case of a multicampus university in Brazil. Its geographical distribution includes 24 campus located mostly in inland small or medium-sized cities - and one campus in the capital, São Paulo. Considering this ditribution, if you draw a circle with a 100 kilometer radius around each of these 24 cities, it will almost entirely cover the state of São Paulo.
Unesp is a respected institution with accomplished members, fully-accredited programs and strong research base - and these will remain its priorities.
