Characterized by varying degrees of international relations through the establishment of fruitful agreements with other academic institutions and research centers, UFBA views international cooperation as an important element for expanding and better fulfilling its contemporary social function.
The International Office understands that among the multiple aspects of international interaction carried out by UFBA, bilateral partnership is indeed the feature that can foster greater development by means of student mobility, faculty development skills, and technical staff training.  AAI therefore is open to prospecting and promoting cooperation agreements in order to allow the formalization of such partnerships. 
The International Office also facilitates access to opportunities for academic mobility with foreign education and research Institutions, with which it holds International Academic Cooperation Agreements.
