One of the oldest agreements maintained by UNIVERSO is its partnership with the University of Porto through its Faculty of Sports (FADEUP). Therefore, UNIVERSO professors frequently go to FADEUP to work on specific subjects in the master's degree course. FADEUP has been involved in several academic projects throughout Brazil, for which the work of teachers such as Jorge Olímpio Bento, José Pedro Sarmento, and Antonio Teixeira Marques contributed. Within this context, UNIVERSO has regularly participated in its meetings and belongs to the Association of Portuguese Language Universities. In 2018, efforts were made to resume the everyday activities provided for by the agreement, mainly in sports management.

In May 2018, the rectors of UNIVERSO and the Pedagogical University of Mozambique (UPM) signed an Academic, Scientific, and Cultural Collaboration Agreement based on the already existing cooperation between PPGCAF at UNIVERSO and the Postgraduate Program in Sports Sciences at UPM. Teacher exchanges have been taking place since 2017, and the development of projects in partnership is expected, particularly in the areas of sport management, physical activity, and health promotion.

Since 2003, UNIVERSO has been part of the Master project network in the context of the inter-university project to train quality teachers for pre-university teaching (MIFORCAL). This project is part of the Higher Education Cooperation Program between the European Union and Latin America. This project has the University of Venice (Universitá Ca Foscari di Venezia) as its coordinating institution through the SSIS/Scuela Interateneo di Specializzazione degli Insegnanti Del Veneto unit. It is registered in the European Union with the reference code II-0452-FA -FI. UNIVERSO is one of the participating institutions. The Network comprises 11 institutions in Brazil, Argentina, Paraguay, Italy, Spain and Portugal. The following points can be highlighted as innovative in this Project:

1. Distance teaching/continuing and initial training for secondary schools; 2. Information and communication/online technologies (creating an international virtual platform); 3. Training of tutors; 4. Scientific research; 5. Interdisciplinarity; 6. Interinstitutionality. The Alfa Rede MIFORCAL project began with constructing the theoretical, methodological proposal in May-August/2003. It was evaluated in the 8th round, which began the evaluation process from the deadline for registering the proposal with the European Community/EC, on 10/30/2003, and its recommendation was published in June/2004.
