Since its launch, BYJU’S FutureSchool has made an impact on millions of eager young learners around the world. Firmly established in English-speaking markets of India, United States and Australia, the school is now looking to expand its global reach even further.
This includes the school’s recent foray into Brazil’s burgeoning edtech marketplace.
Bringing Cutting-Edge Online Education to the Brazilian Community
BYJU’S FutureSchool first announced plans to enter the Brazilian market last April, and began to set those plans in motion just one month later. At the time, BYJU’S FutureSchool also revealed plans had been initiated for expansion into Mexico and Indonesia.
The industry-leading edtech platform began its expansion into Brazil with the release of its core math and coding curricula, optimizing each course to meet the unique learning needs of students across the country.
BYJU’S FutureSchool looks to expand this offering in the near future, adding courses in science, music, fine art, and other subjects to ensure a more comprehensive learning experience. It’s hoped that the school’s new international aspirations will bring its unique brand of learning to millions of additional students worldwide.
