Brazil International Week

Bringing the WORLD to TAU!

Brazil International Week

TAU International and the Student Union of Tel Aviv University have crafted five country's worth of party-weeks to enchant you throughout the year. Get ready for a trip of a lifetime, brought to our doorsteps of the University!


This time we're "flying" to the land of football, feijoada, and funk! It's February, but that doesn't mean you can't dust off your flip flops. Brazil is the perfect next stop in our International Week journey, as the country is home to over 300 ethnic groups, giving way to a seriously diverse culture. 


The festivities will run between February 20th and February 24th all over campus, adding some one-of-a-kind Brazilian energy to the University.
