How to Study Abroad in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Argentina CoastlineThere was recently an animated movie released that took place in this breathtaking city. However, if this is all you ever see of Rio de Janeiro, you will be missing out. In fact, I’d have to recommend that instead just watching the movie, you study abroad there.

Rio is the second largest city in Brazil and is home to 6.3 million people. This is a fantastic place to study abroad if you want to learn Portuguese, experience Carnival, or get caught up in the 2014 FIFA World Cup madness. It is also home to absolutely beautiful landscapes and a tropical savanna climate, which means it is constantly warm with temperatures rarely dipping below 65 degrees Farenheight.

So you are wanting to study abroad in Rio? Here are some of our tips for things you should do while in this magnificent city in order to really take advantage of everything the city has to offer.

1. Take a train ride up to see Christ the Redeemer. This huge statue of Christ the Redeemer has become an international symbol of Rio de Janeiro. You can take the Corcovado Train up the mountain to see the statue up-close and personal. More than 300,000 people every year venture up the mountain to see this statue, and even if you are not a Christian, this is a fantastic work of art that you should see if you are studying abroad in Rio. Try to sit on the right-hand side of the train to get the best views as the train climbs the mountain.

2. Go to the beach! This is one of my favorite things to do in Rio. There are beautiful beaches all along the coast near Rio, but two of the most famous are Ipanema and Copacabana. Ipanema is also home to great shopping options and trendy cafes, so make sure you bring your wallet with you to this beach destination. Copacabana is a very famous beach and is a great place to take a stroll along the ocean. However, it often gets very crowded – especially on the weekends – so go early and stake out a spot. Both beaches are wonderful for people-watching and soaking up some rays.

How to Study Abroad without Breaking the Bank

Image of globe, passport, guide book and moneyStudying abroad is one of the best things you can do during college, in my opinion. I studied abroad twice in two different countries and learned a lot more than just the subjects that I studied during my class hours. Studying abroad is a great way to learn a new language or learn another culture and way of life. You can take classes that relate to your major, or you can study something that is completely unrelated to your major. Either way, you are going to learn lessons about yourself and how you relate to other people that I feel are impossible to do while living in your own country.

So, studying abroad is fantastic. It makes you a better person. It’s a life changing opportunity and everyone should take advantage of it during college. Great. But it can also be very expensive, especially if you don’t know some of the tricks to the trade. Luckily for you, I happen to be a pro at this (or at least that’s what I tell myself) and I’m willing to share some tips for studying abroad in some of the hottest study abroad locations in the world.

EDUinReview will be releasing a series of posts this school year that will focus on traveling and living abroad in some of the best locations in the world. This series will provide you with valuable information about living in a foreign country, such as which tourists attractions are really worth your time and money, which restaurants to eat at and which ones to avoid like the plague, and how to really experience the culture of the place you are living in. If you have already decided on a place to study abroad at, these posts will help prepare you for the great adventure you are about to embark on. If you haven’t decided, they can serve as a great resource for you. Either way, it’s going to be a great way to learn how to really study abroad without spending your entire life-savings. Who can say no to that, right?
