UQ will be hosting Professor José Celso Freire Junior, Associate Provost for International Affairs and Head, International Office, Universidade Estadual Paulista (UNESP) from 15 January - 23 February under the Endeavour Executive Fellowship program.

Professor Freire Junior is also the current President of FAUBAI (the Brazilian Association for International Education). As such, he is uniquely positioned to provide valuable insights about Brazilian universities’ current internationalisation efforts and opportunities for collaboration with Australia, particularly with respect to the Brazilian Higher Education Internationalisation Plan recently announced by CAPES, the funding body attached to the Brazilian Ministry of Education.  

Professor Freire Junior will be delivering a presentation to UQ staff interested in engaging with UNESP and with Brazil more broadly.

As Professor Freire Junior will be spending six weeks at UQ progressing opportunities for collaboration between our institutions, please do not hesitate to contact international.visits@uq.edu.au if you wish to arrange for a meeting or tour of your school, faculty or institute.
