University of São Paulo (USP) is one of the largest and most important research, technological and higher education 

institution of Brazil and Latin America. Founded in 1934, USP is a public state institution, and has campi located in eight 

cities in the state of São Paulo (Bauru, Lorena, Piracicaba, Pirassununga, Ribeirão Preto, Santos, São Carlos and 

São Paulo). 

USP offers 300 undergraduate programs and 222 graduate programs (MSc and PhD degrees), in all fields of knowledge, 

with tuition free for regular and exchange students.


Altogether, there are about 90,000 enrolled students at USP. Its academic structure is organized into 42 schools, 6 specialized

 institutes, and four important museums, which receive over one-million visitors each year.

USP also offers 984 extra-curricular programs for its students and the wider community that range from science and culture 

to innovative health care and therapy. USP has two major hospitals and dental health centers that directly benefit the 

population, and a partnership with two of the best hospitals in the cities of São Paulo and Ribeirão Preto. There are also 

sports practice centers, theaters, symphonic and chamber orchestras, and many other scientific and cultural diffusion centers.


USP is a research-led institution, and since its foundation it has maintained a leadership role in Brazilian scientific and 

scholarly production, being responsible for 22% of all Brazilian academic output. Besides, the university graduate provision 

corresponds to 16% of all PhD awarded in Brazil, and 44% of the state of São Paulo. University of São Paulo also benefits 

from the continuous improvement of its interdisciplinary research centers in collaboration with international partners, which is 

demonstrated in 34% of all USP papers published with international co-authors.
