Floripa, as it is affectionately called by locals, showcases over 42 beaches, rolling mountains, Atlantic rainforest, soft white sand dunes, and an array of offshore islands. As a complement to its natural beauty, this popular city has been named one of the best places to live and do business in Brazil. Florianópolis is a unique destination where past, present, and future coexist harmoniously, making it an active and dynamic city environment for you to study abroad in.

What Our Students are Saying
"Florianopolis is the place to go for a cultural experience."
Greta S.University of Colorado - Boulder
"I learned so much from this experience from education to living in a different country. It was an extremely rewarding experience."
Chelsea B.University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee
"ISA will allow you to experience new and exciting things while abroad. For those who would like a change of pace from the American way of education; study abroad! It will impact you and allow you the opportunity of self-growth that you may not find if you choose not to study abroad."
Cristian S.Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts
"ISA offered a perfect amount of activities, excursions, and free time in a different country. There was a little bit of everything you could have wanted all wrapped up into one perfect learning abroad experience."
Jessica V.University of Utah
"Overall, I am extremely happy to have chosen ISA and come to Brazil! If you have even the slightest inkling "of a desire to study abroad, just do it, because it'll be worth it! If you come during the summer, stay with a host family so you make at least one connection while you're here, but if you can you should totally go for a semester or academic year!"
Joseph R.University of Minnesota - Twin Cities
