Admission and Mobility

Admission for degree-seeking students

Undergraduate studies:

Students interested in undergraduate degrees should take the National Entry Exam (ENEM). The exam happens once a year, the test is in Portuguese, and in order to sign up for it you need to have registered as a foreigner in Brazil and to have a CPF number.

Students can sign up at a specific time of the year, usually the end of the first semester, at this page (in Portuguese).

Graduate studies:

Students interested in graduate degrees should know that each program has special requirements for admission. Calls for selection processes are published at the programs websites, some of them are in English, some in Portuguese. A list of all the graduate programs offered, and their websites, can be found here.


Degree seeking students have to fulfill the requirements of the call they’re applying for.
