Brazil landscape

We are proud to be making a significant investment to support partnership development and research collaboration with leading universities and key public and private organisations in Brazil. In addition to our extensive engagement across Brazil we have a flourishing community of Brazilian doctoral researchers on campus. We have established joint research investment funds with FAPESP, FAPERJ and the University of Nottingham and offer PhD scholarships and Visiting Fellowships.

In 2014 we won the prestigious Times Higher Education Leadership and Management Award for Outstanding International Strategy for our work with Brazil.
