Learn more about higher education in the United States and the various possibilities and pathways for Brazilians to study in the country. This is the purpose of the Virtual Education Exhibition, which will take place next Tuesday, November 16, at 8:00 pm (Brasilia time, 7:00 pm Boston). Transfer process.
The event is promoted by the Tiradentes Institute, the international arm of the Tiradentes Group, in association with the Consulate General of Brazil in Boston and the Boston Citizens’ Council, an independent organization representing the interests of the Brazilian community living in the area. This year, the meeting will be held online, through Access link. Guests include Brazil’s Ambassador General in Boston, Ambassador Benedict Fonseca Filho, lawyer and political representative Marconi Almeida and student Louna Machado, who lived through the experience.
The main focus of the exhibition will be on discussing ways and means for children of Brazilians, especially immigrants and residents of the United States, to enter American colleges and universities. This is also an opportunity to ask questions about the process.
Professor Everton Costa, co-ordinator of the Boston Citizens Council’s education portfolio, explains that there is a great need for those interested in enrolling in American higher education, especially Brazilians already in the United States. “But there are also Brazilian students who see companies in the United States as a different training opportunity than students in Brazil,” he says.
According to Everton, many interested in studying abroad do not know where to look for information and assistance. “There are charities / organizations that help, as well as schools in Brazil that provide counseling. Being in the United States, you are highly dependent on your immigration status. In fact, one of the purposes of the event is to highlight the need to search for information and to help determine where to find it, ”the professor reinforces.
The show has been around for a few years and has always been live. It was seen as a way to bring people from the Brazilian immigrant community together with institutions and universities and to integrate the Brazilian community in the Boston region into the field of education and training to share knowledge about opportunities.
