About us

EducationUSA is a U.S. Department of State network of over 430 international student advising centers in more than 175 countries. The network promotes U.S. higher education around the world by offering accurate, comprehensive, and current information about opportunities to study at accredited postsecondary institutions in the United States.

EducationUSA Mackenzie is the result of a partnership between Mackenzie Presbyterian University and the U.S. Department of State. Our office aims to facilitate access U.S. higher education by providing a series of services, such as advising sessions, certified translations of documents and events with American universities.

Advising sessions

Advising sessions are a personalized service to help with the application process to universities in the United States. The academic levels available for advising sessions include undergraduate and graduate courses, post-doctorate, short-term programs and medical residency.

EducationUSA advisers follow the 5 Steps to U.S. Study methodology. Thus, it is possible to understand the application process for American universities from choosing universities to traveling to the United States.

Advising sessions at all academic levels are online or in-person, depending on your preference. For mackenzistas, the first session is free of charge.

You can schedule your orientation in advance through the following link. Select the desired level of study, indicate a date and time and enter your personal information. We will soon send you an e-mail confirming the appointment.

Certified translations

As EducationUSA is a network of the U.S. State Department, it is authorized to create certified translations of academic and financial documents to American universities.

Conversation Club

COI (Coordination of International and Interinstitutional Cooperation) and EducationUSA bring to all mackenzistas the Conversation Club, a weekly and free of charge opportunity to improve conversation skills in English.

During the second half of 2022 we will have 10 meetings, each with a different theme.
