Information regarding study at LMU:

LMU takes advantage of its success in the Excellence Initiative and Strategy to strengthen its profile as a “universitas” that is strong in research, over the coming years, and to continue to expand its international position.

At LMU, national and foreign scientists find excellent conditions for their research, whether in each of the disciplines or linked to different areas of knowledge.

LMU maintains a broad-based international network and cooperates in undergraduate programs, research, and administration with highly respected partners worldwide.

For many years, LMU has maintained scientific contacts with Brazilian universities in the State of São Paulo, which go far beyond this. Nevertheless, the strategic cooperation with USP and UNICAMP, the heterogeneous structures of LMU have generated many more fruitful and enduring partnerships, including with the Federal University of the State of Paraíba, the Federal University of the city of São João del Rei, the Federal University of the State of Minas Gerais, and the National School of Insurance.

The LMU representative office in Brazil provides supporting services for researchers in creating new cooperative efforts.
