University of São Paulo

Since 2010, the Department of Psychosocial Studies at Birkbeck has had a formal link with the Department of Social Psychology and the Psychology Institute at the University of São Paulo (USP), Brazil. The partnership includes staff and student exchanges and has been particularly attractive for PhD students and those on some of our MA programmes. Students from USP or Birkbeck usually visit the other institution for six months, taking appropriate modules either as ‘auditors’ or as part of their regular studies. For Birkbeck students wishing to go to USP, it is necessary to have sufficient competence in Portuguese to be able to study in that language; USP students study in English during their time at Birkbeck.

More information about the opportunities available to students at both institutions can be found on the Department of Psychosocial Studies website.
