Selection process

Entrance Exam
The Entrance Exam is usually offered twice a year (July and November) and the rules and regulations are disclosed through an Open Call at least 2 months in advance. Specific rules can vary from year to year, due to the interests of the university and the program, so we ask that students applying for a spot in the Program read the corresponding call carefully. For the students who applied for 2017, the entrance exam consisted of a knowledge test in the areas of the Program (to write off and rank), evaluation of the candidate’s curriculum by a doctorate committee and a foreign language test (to write off). Applicants wishing to apply for institutional fellowships (provided by the Program and linked to CAPES or CNPq) must mandatorily take the knowledge test according to the Call.
