Universidade de São Paulo (USP)

 

The University of São Paulo (USP) in São Paulo, Brazil, is the third largest university in Latin America, with more than 600 courses on offer to 40,000 students.

The size and international reputation of the USP is particularly noteworthy, considering that it is a relatively young institution that celebrates its 70th Anniversary this year.

In addition to the main campus in São Paulo, the university maintains research centers in Bauru, Piraciciaba, Pirassununga, Ribeirão Preto, and São Carlos.

The university engages in the community surrounding each campus. The practical Science Museum, the Estação Ciência, and 24 smaller museums attract more than one million visitors per year - about the same number as patients at the university hospitals and clinics.
