Students Program - Undergraduate Agreement – PEC - G

The agreement for the undergraduate program constitutes one of the instruments of cooperation that the Brazilian government offers to other developing countries, especially in Africa and Latin America.

Vacancies are offered for courses in the day period to candidates who present proof of having completed secondary education or the equivalent.

How it works:

The University informs the Secretary of Higher Education – Ministry of Education (SESu-MEC) of the number of vacancies available per program.

The selective process begins with a preliminary selection of the candidates by Brazilian diplomatic missions and ceases under the coordination of the Scientific, Technical and Technological Cooperation Department  - Ministry of International Relations (DCT-MRE) with the participation of the SESu-MEC advised by a committee appointed by the Forum of Undergraduate Vice-presidencies of Brazilian Universities.

Registration will be only authorized by the SESu-MEC after authorization is officially communicated by the DCT-MRE.

In addition to complying with its own protocol requirements, the Students Program - Undergraduate Agreement shall also comply with the rules of the host institution.
