About the Program


  • Students enrolled in foreign institutions as undergraduate students may attend classes at USP Medical School (FMUSP) as undergraduate exchange students, thus obtaining credits or developing academic researches compatible with their subject fields.
  • If the institution which the student belongs to doesn’t have an academic agreement with USP, it’s still possible to apply for an exchange at the University, but it’ll depend on the number of vacancies available.
  • All the applicants must be nominated by his/her Home Institution in order to start the application process.


Exchange on the 1st semester (January – June): online application from August 1st until September 30th (nomination until September 15th).

Exchange on the 2nd semester (July – December): online application from February 1st until March 30th (nomination until March 15th).

Results: around 30 days after the application closes.


Language Proficiency

It depends on each course, there are some courses that are fully in Portuguese but there are also other ones totally in English.


USP is a public state institution that receives exchange students at no cost.

The accommodation is also for free.
