A campus in the heart of São Paulo
The Brazil Studio is based on Mackenzie’s historic campus of Higienopolis. Like a small city in the city, this campus combines history and technology and gives students optimal living conditions as close as you can get to the cultural and professional heart of São Paulo. Green spaces, food courts, banks, playing fields, a library… The secure campus is an absolutely fantastic setting for studying. And since the beginning of 2018, it has been served by a subway stop which links it to the rest of the main districts and places of interest in the city
The Brazil Studio is housed in the Faculty of architecture and urban planning (FAU) at Mackenzie, one of the most renowned in the country. The students have access to exceptional facilities (workshops for ceramic, metal, wood, 3D printing or laser cutting). There is also a 26m² space reserved for students on the Brazil Studio program enabling them to work in total autonomy on the campus.
A real mix of French and Brazilian students
One of the defining features of the Brazil Studio is the diversity of its students. It is made up of French and Brazilian students. This implies some adjustments, particularly of a cultural nature, in the program’s organization. The majority of Brazilian students, for example, work in a company at the same time as completing their studies. Consequently, classes are only scheduled in the morning.
This feature is an added opportunity for the students who will have the chance to mix with students from another culture and from a different training background.
