In 2019 was celebrated the 30th anniversary of the Jean Monnet Activities through a series of events and other initiatives around the world. Over the last 30 years, a striking number of almost 5000 projects have contributed to the field of European integration studies. Currently half a million students benefit from the Jean Monnet Actions every year, which is now present in 87 countries worldwide. The present paper reports a case study on the Portucalense University (UPT) the “Jean Monnet European module: The European Union as a global player for Democracy and Fundamental Rights” aims to promote knowledge about the European Union from a legal perspective for a target audience made up of law graduates from Brazilian universities who are interested in pursuing graduate studies in Portugal The linguistic and cultural proximity between Portugal and Brazil makes it increasingly possible for Brazilian citizens to seek Portugal with the aim of taking postgraduate, masters and doctoral courses. This flow of people is in line with one of UPT's main strategic objectives: internationalization. In this regard, UPT has demonstrated, year after year, greater capacity to appeal to international students, with a significant number of Brazilian students. It was applied a questionnaire about the module. We conclude that the perception and interests of students was positive from the experience.
