Brazilian students, citizens of the world

Madrid, 30th August 2012.- With international mobility programmes such as Top China and Top Salamanca, Santander, through its Santander Universities Global Division, promotes exchange between the academic communities of Brazil and a further 16 countries where it is present.

Top China is entering its fourth edition with 78 students and 22 teachers from Brazil travelling to China to study at Shanghai Jiao Tong University and Peking University. The programme includes 3-week courses on Urban Planning, Sustainability and the Environment, as well as activities to learn Mandarin and discover other aspects of China's ancient culture.

Jamil Hannouche, director of Santander Universities in Brazil, spoke to the students benefitting from this programme: “We are very pleased with the progress being made in this programme, which is a very important initiative. Each one of you is writing its history. And I would encourage you to make the most of everything China's wealth of culture has to offer”.

For professor Carlos André Bulhões Mendes, from the Universidade Federal de Rio Grande do Sul, which is coordinating the programme, it is a unique opportunity: “It is a privilege to be a part of such an innovative and complete programme. The beauty of this exchange lies in the difference between the two nations, and to make the most of this, it is important to keep an open mind”.

Top Salamanca, immersion in Spanish culture
70 students along with teachers and members of AfroReggae have spent 3 weeks at the Universidad de Salamanca learning about the Spanish culture and language. For the first time this year, 20 employees from Santander Brazil are also joining in with this initiative, as winners of the Santander Formula Quiz, or professionals from the Commercial Network awarded a Salamanca Grant.

Kauê Tartarotti Nepomuceno Duarte, studying Information Systems at UNICAMP, was one of the beneficiaries of this programme: “I am happy with Santander and have been a customer of them for some time. To have an opportunity such as this at the age of 18 is a huge privilege”.
