ADMISSION FOR FOREIGNER STUDENTS

1. For those interested in some countries of Africa, Asia, Oceania, Latin America and the Caribbean:

With the purpose of granting Master and Doctoral scholarships, CAPES (Improvement Coordination of High-Education Personnel) and MRE (Department of Foreign Affairs) through the DCE (Division of Educational Issues) and CNPq (National Council for Scientific and Technological Development) open the Announcement of Application for the Program of AgreementStudent of Graduation Studies (PEC/PG) every year. The student approved in this selection process will be admitted in the Graduation Studies for the following year, being submitted to a proficiency test in the English and Portuguese languages (provided that neither of them is the student’s native language) soon after arriving in Brazil. Find below the link to the site of CAPES:

2. For those interested in coming to Brazil bearing any kind of scholarship:

 In this case, the Coordination Commission for Graduation Studies of the course of the applicant’s interest will forward a test to a professor of the applicant’s origin country, nominated by the applicant’s prospective Advisor Professor of the Faculty of Animal Science and Food Engineering, so that this same test can be given to the applicant there. Should the applicant get a grade equal or superior to 5 (five), he/she will be accepted in the Program at any time, being submitted to a proficiency test in the English and Portuguese languages (provided that neither of them is the applicant’s native language) soon after arriving in Brazil.

In some cases the Coordination Commission for Graduation Studies disobliges a written test, since the applicant has already gone through a selection test to be granted the scholarship.

 3. For those interested in coming to Brazil without any kind of scholarship:

 In this case, the applicant should wait for the Announcement of the Selection for the Graduation Studies Program to be made public, and request application within the established period of time. The applicant does not have to come to Brazil to do the tests; however, if the student does not come, he/she will be automatically placed at the end of the scholarship classification list, and wait till the Coordination Commission of the Program can send a test to a professor of the applicant’s origin country, nominated by the applicant’s prospective Advisor Professor of the Faculty of Animal Science and Food Engineering, so that this same test can be applied to the applicant there, which will occur only after the test has been applied in Brazil. Also, the applicant will not be able to participate in the discussion of the pre-project, which is one of the steps of the selection process. The applicant will only be maintained at the end of the scholarship classification list provided that he gets a grade equal or superior to 5 (five) in the written test, and soon after arriving in Brazil the applicant will have to do a proficiency test in the English and Portuguese languages (provided that neither of them is the applicant’s native language).

Please keep in mind that for any of these cases above mentioned the applicant must have a previous contact with a prospective Advisor Professor of the Faculty of Animal Science and Food Engineering of the University of São Paulo.
