Brazil Week 2017


King’s College London is committed to a meaningful engagement with Brazil through extensive research collaborations, exchanges and many other activities.

Every year King’s welcomes around 100 students from Brazil into a wide range of undergraduate and graduate programmes, including those supported by Science without Borders.

We have an alumni community of over 360 in Brazil. 

To celebrate our proud tradition of engagement with Brazil we will be holding a Brazil Week from 30 January - 4 February 2017 so we can celebrate all things Brazil at King’s.
