Cost of Living

These outlays vary, depending on student lifestyles, averaging out at around US$ 1500 x month.

As the Getulio Vargas Foundation (FGV) has no student housing, foreign students must plan to obtain private accommodation. The International Office can provide assistance and advice to students, although it cannot look for housing, which must be handled by the students themselves.

Health Insurance

Students must take out health insurance in their home countries, covering the entire duration of their stays in Brazil, as health insurance premiums are high in Brazil.
