Cost of Living

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

Check out some estimated prices here.


As the Getulio Vargas Foundation (FGV) has no student housing, foreign or an accommodation office, international 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 country, covering the entire duration of their stay.The insurance policy must have a minimum coverage of 30,000 euros or 42,000 US dollars and be valid for the entire stay of the student in this country. Coverage must also cover repatriation of mortal remains.
