Universidade do Vale do Rio dos Sinos
S„o Leopoldo, Brazil


University description (as per official university website)

The University of the Sinos Valley (Universidade do Vale do Rio dos Sinos) is one of the greatest private universities in the country.

Unisinos has always been innovative, and, at the same time, preserved its original values. Breathing in knowledge and living in a multicultural environment are just two of the many experiences the campus offers, along with a journey into exploring and acquiring wisdom.

In 2008, Unisinos was considered the best private university in the south region of Brazil and the third best private in the country by the Education Ministry , which released its first general national ranking of all undergraduate and graduate brazilian institutions. ďUnisinos is proud to be ranked in such a good position. The merit belongs to all academic community. Faculty and supporting teams are restless in the effort of offering the best education to our students", said the director of Unisinos Graduate Academic Unit, Ione Bentz.

Officially recognized in 1969, the University of the Sinos Valley (Universidade do Vale do Rio dos Sinos) is one of the greatest private universities in the country. The University is maintained by the Antonio Vieira Association, which is the legal name of the Jesuit Province in Southern Brazil, a part of the Company of Jesus, the religious order founded by Saint Ignatius of Loyola. Unisinos has always been innovative, and, at the same time, preserved its original values. Breathing in knowledge and living in a multicultural environment are just two of the many experiences the campus offers, along with a journey into exploring and acquiring wisdom.


In 1869, in S„o Leopoldo, in Rio Grande do Sul State, Jesuits found Colťgio Nossa Senhora da ConceiÁ„o, the first official school in Rio Grande do Sul. The Cristo Rei Faculty of Philosophy, Sciences and Literature becomes official in 1953. It is later named S„o Leopoldo Faculty of Philosophy, Sciences and Literature, and continues to expand. Precisely one century after the beginnings of Colťgio Nossa Senhora da ConceiÁ„o, on July 31st, 1969, Saint Ignatius of Loyolaís Day, Unisinos receives official recognition as a University.

Unisinos offers more than 50 undergraduate and college courses, in the fields of Human Sciences, Health Sciences, Communication Sciences, Legal Sciences, Economic Sciences, Administrative Sciences and Exact Sciences and Technology.
