The Center of Internationalization of Education Brazil-Australia, fruit of the joint efforts between PUCRS and the Embassy of Australia in Brazil, aims to become a hub for the internationalization of education for Latin America.

Located at the School of Humanities, the Center aims to promote the development of research on internationalization of education and cooperation activities in education. Additionally, it aims to foster collaboration agreements between PUCRS and educational institutions in Australia, development agencies, technology parks and researchers.

The Center aims to:

  • Contribute to the improvement of research and educational activities between Brazil and Australia;
  • Develop expertise and share world-class practices in education;
  • Consolidate research networks involving Brazil and Australia;
  • Promote intercultural education and academic exchanges;
  • Become a reference hub in the internationalization of education for Latin America.

Internationalization of Education in Latin America

Working in partnership with the Centre of Internationalization of Education Brazil-Australia, Curtin University, and La Trobe University Australia, we aim to establish and nurture a Latin-American network and virtual community of practitioners, experts, and champions in internationalising the curriculum home.
