International Office



DERI is responsible for administrative and financial support to some initiatives of
Unicamp ‘s international cooperation, including the Confucius Institute.

The agreement for the creation of the Confucius Institute at Unicamp was signed in 2020 with the Headquarters of the Confucius Institute in China (Hanban), but given the extinction of the aforementioned institute, responsibilities for the Chinese side were assumed by Beijing University Jiaotong. The partnership’s main objective is to offer courses in Mandarin to
Unicamp’s internal and external community and such courses are offered on the Campinas and Limeira campuses, as well as on COTUCA and COTIL.

The Confucius Institute also carries out cultural activities related to the
teaching Mandarin or to China and taking the official Mandarin Proficiency Tests
(HSK and HSKK).
