UDESC campus

The campus of UDESC is located in Florianopolis. This is a fairly large city that opens up many opportunities for students: from cafes, restaurants and other entertainment to internships at large companies. But an urban campus can also be a disadvantage, because big city life distracts some students from their studies. The educational institution has its own library. Here, students do their homework or just have a good time reading an interesting book. Not only locals study at UDESC, but also students from other countries. The variety of cultures represented broadens the horizons of students and fills student life with all sorts of activities, the purpose of which is cultural exchange.
