The Skills Wihthout Borders program was launched at the British Embassy in Brasilia in August. The project will offer technical education students from Brazilian State of Minas Gerais the opportunity to study in the UK.

Brazilian students will attend British institutions between January and March 2016. In total there will be 10-12 students in the state who will have the opportunity to improve their proficiency in the English language and deepen their knowledge in aerospace, gardening, landscaping and electrical engineering, among others.

The inspiration for the project came from the Science Without Borders program, which offers opportunities for Brazilian undergraduate and post-graduate to study abroad. The UK is creator of Skills Wihthout Borders program and want, in the coming years to extend the same partnership to other states and regions of Brazil.

The program is a joint initiative between the British Mission in Brazil, the Association of Colleges (AoC), responsible for coordinating the technical education in the United Kingdom, the Federal Center of Technological Education of Minas Gerais, the Federal Institute of Education, Science and Technology of Minas Gerais and the National Council of the Institutions of the Federal Vocational Education Network, Science and Technology (CONIF).
