2025 Americas Banner 

São Paulo, Brazil

This Regional Institute is aimed at connecting secondary school counselors within the LATAM Region with university admission advising tools and networks of universities around the world. It is also intended for universities around the world who want to build connections and deepen their understanding of students in the LATAM market.

Through in-depth and focused conversations and presentations, participants will gain a greater understanding of the educational process, admission requirements, fees and scholarships, and the challenges and opportunities students face when applying to a university outside of LATAM.
