I can not think of a better place to pursue college experience than Rosemary. Because although everyone is coming from and heading to a different place, the people who gather there have one thing in common: they are crazily motivated to grow, to become a better version of themselves and to create a better version of this world.

After having spent one beautiful and exciting month in Rosemary with adorable people and a social environment which is unique I believe spending a semester of studying in Rosemary with Riseglobe is definitely of integrative character in many ways.

Cultural Immersion

Colourful beautiful Brazil… the sparking eyes of locals at the start of a football game or the sound of their vibrant music. You will have the chance to immerse yourself in the Brazilian culture.

Speak: Followed by the colonization of Brazil by Portugal, Portuguese is the most spoken language in the country. A weekly language class will be offered for you to be better immersed in the Brazilian culture by socialising with the locals and understanding their world.

Experience: A variety of cultural experiences and activities will be provided throughout the semester. Among others, you will have the opportunity to experience a full day’s fishing on the Atlantic ocean with Barra da Lagoa’s fishermen. You will as well have the chance to experience a Temazcal, an ancestral tradition representing rebirth.
