University of Guelph researchers travel to Brazil in order to conduct research, share knowledge, and learn. Likewise, Brazilian students and faculty do the same here at the U of G campus. Programs such as Science without Borders (SwB) have made this a possibility.

Science without Borders

The University of Guelph was the 4th largest Canadian recipient of students from Brazil’s Science without Borders (SwB) program. Between the years 2012 and 2015, U of G welcomed 301 Brazilian exchange students into its various undergraduate and graduate programs. For a more thorough breakdown, please refer to the information presented below.

Out of the total number of exchange students, there have been:

  • 245 undergraduate students
  • 56 graduate students

The following diagrams represent the percentage of undergraduate and graduate SwB students at U of G, and the disciplines pursued by Brazilian undergraduate students, respectively.
