For Immediate Release

 

The Brazilian Community Center of San Francisco (BCCSF) is honored to announce the First Academic Conference and University Fair for the Brazilian community . The conference will provide an opportunity for Brazilian students - both national and international alike - to meet representatives from a number of Universities and Colleges to understand the admission process and bridge the cultural divide that can come in the way of students from fully participating in the US higher education system. 

If you aspire to continue your higher education in the U.S but have many questions regarding the american education system and how the admission process , this conference is for you!   Learn the insights from the experts, hear the histories from fellow Brazilians grad and undergrad students and learn how they did it.
