International Office

Our International Office assists in FAUUSP's International Relations with Schools and Educational Institutions around the world.

A Faculdade de Arquitetura e Urbanismo da Universidade de São Paulo realizou seus primeiros acordos internacionais com a Faculdade de Arquitetura da Universidade do Porto em1988 e com a Technische Universiteit Delft em 1990. Atualmente estão vigentes acordos internacionais com 41 instituições de 14 países em 3 continentes. Nos últimos anos perto de uma centena de estudantes realizaram intercâmbios internacionais. A Comissão de Cooperação Internacional (CCInt) foi criada em 2004 para dar suporte às relações internacionais da Faculdade com centros de referência das áreas de arquitetura e urbanismo e design; promover e divulgar a produção da FAU no exterior para fortalecer a posição dessa Faculdade como centro nacional e internacional de referência. A dupla titulação com instituições estrangeiras aponta para novas perspectivas de trocas e inserções internacionais. A FAU e seus cursos tem se destacado nos rankings internacionais e nacionais.

Agreements Instructions

FAUUSP has academic agreements with several institutions around the world.

The agreements allow students to exchange, double diploma (undergraduate and master) and double degree (doctorate).
In addition to being able to include the mobility of professors and staff.

To initiate an agreement, the institution must contact us (ccintfau@usp.br), so that we can begin negotiations on legal terms between the parties involved. If there is already a contact with a FAUUSP’s professor, this professor may mediate the negotiation.

USP has some pre-written agreement models, which can be made more flexible as agreed between the institutions.

Below are two models of agreements in English:

International Students - Incoming

Exchange at FAUUSP

Factsheet _ FAUUSP 2022 v2

FAUUSP receives students from partner institutions abroad for one or two semesters, depending on the nature of the agreement between the institutions. FAUUSP receives students of Architecture and Design courses.
The courses of Architecture and Urbanism and Design at FAUUSP last five years. The Architecture course has classes in the morning and afternoon (from 08h00 to 18h00) and the Design course is in the night (19h00 to 22h30).

USP’s Credits : 1 credit class is 15 hours and 1 credit work, 30 hours. The home institution, upon return of the student, makes an analysis of the credits and hours completed by the student during the exchange, to account for them in their own system.
FAUUSP’s academic year begins at the beginning of the year, usually at the end of February. The academic calendar can be accessed at Jupiterweb: uspdigital.usp.br/jupiterweb

NOMINATION AND APPLICATION

To apply for an exchange student at FAU, the home institution must make her / him NOMINATION.

Note: Acceptance is subject to the number of students interested in doing an exchange at FAU in that semester. In case of many applications (above what we can receive) we give priority to institutions that have a direct agreement with FAUUSP, in order to respect the balance of sending and receiving students between schools. And in these cases we can limit between 1 or 2 students from institutions that do not have an agreement with the FAU.
