The new program consists of 10 classes, and will be offered during the week that precedes the beginning of the academic semester, from Jul 16 – 27. It will feature language and cultural insights as well as integration activities to introduce students to the Main Campus.

In addition to the language to be taught, students will have the chance to ask questions about the academic aspects of PUCRS, learn the cultural aspects of Porto Alegre and Rio Grande do Sul and meet other academic mobility students. Dr Heloísa Delgado, Dean of International Cooperation, claims that this experience will provide students with cultural support during their stay at the University. It will also be useful for them to find out more about the things PUCRS has to offer.
