Subject: I want to go to Bahia
IP: Logged

Message:
I am a student at The NHTV Breda University of Professional
Education and I am writing to you with the following request.
In Breda I am studying International Tourism Management & Consultancy. This is a four year graduate course that trains students in research, marketing and management skills. It also pays attention to the subject sustainable tourism/ecotourism.
Graduates from our institute are active in tourism planning and management processes of both governmental bodies and companies in the tourism industry, at home as well as abroad.
During the second semester of the third year students have to attend a placement abroad for the period of six months. The idea is that students work full-time in the organization, preferably in various departments. In addition, students are required to do an assignment.
I take the liberty to ask if you would be willing to help me get in contact with organizations that work with ecotourism in Bahia. I am very interested in doing my placement in the subject area of sustainable tourism. I am a pretty idealistic person and I have always wanted to do something I believe in and in which I can give the full 100 percent. After I graduate I would like to work in this area. I would also love to do my placement in Brazil. My father is Brazilian, I have lived in Brazil as a child and I have always wanted to go back for a while.
Speaking Portuguese will probably not be a too great obstacle. I have spoken this language until I was nine years old, so it will not be too difficult to pick it up again.
I am also very committed to sustainable tourism. I strongly believe that this type of tourism is necessary to preserve nature and develop tourism in a right manner.
I hope someone can provide me with extra information about or addresses from organizations that operate in the field of sustainable tourism and the concerning projects.

Thank you,

Carolina

Hi, I too want to go brazil for a semester. I am an engineering student so its is quite different from what you do. Is it a semester abroad to work or to study. Because if it is to study you can check out this site out : http://www.ge4.org/prog/prog_lae3.htm
This is a program for exchange students so you should be able to get economic help from the EU/Holland. Although there isnt a University in BAHIA and im not sure this is much help. Although if u have the cash it shouldnt be a problem to find a place. Maybe some brazilian have some ideas.
