Welcome to the Middlebury Schools in Brazil Handbook! Please use the Table of Contents below or the menu above to navigate to different sections of the Handbook.
This Handbook has been compiled to help prepare you for the Middlebury College study abroad in Brazil program. Please read everything carefully and be sure to follow the instructions.

A successful experience abroad depends in part upon how well you can assume the responsibility of preparing yourself for it.
If you read all of this material carefully you will find the answers to many commonly asked and basic questions. However, our office always welcomes your e-mails, phone calls, and inquiries and hopes that you will continue to seek guidance and support as you prepare for your School Abroad experience. Likewise, our staff is always available to talk to your parents and family and answer any questions they may have regarding your time abroad.
