Internacional Cooperation

Students attending the Center of Science and Technology courses are offered the opportunity to join various categories of Exchange Programs, managed by the International Programs Central Coordination Office (CCCI), which are:

  1. Academic Exchange programs– studying abroad for one or two semesters in an institution that maintains an exchange agreement with PUC-Rio. Courses taken abroad will be considered for credits in student’s academic record.
  2. Double Diploma programs – studying abroad for three or four semesters, in specific partner institutions. The student who enrolls in this modality will be eligible to two diplomas, one issued by PUC-Rio and the other by the partner institution. Additional information on the Double Diploma with the partner French institutions can be found, in French, in the video below:
  3. Short-term exchange programs– studying abroad for 4 to 6 weeks during vacation periods. The focus here is to improve foreign language proficiency and the programs are held in renowned universities in all parts of the world.
