Step 5

After an initial analysis of your application, you will be informed, via your e-mail address, whether something is pending, in which case you will be asked to supply the necessary information or documentation. If nothing is pending, you will be asked to print out a document, issued by the platform, to be signed and validated by the academic and institutional coordinators of your institution.

The signed document must then be scanned and uploaded back onto our platform so the International Office at UFF can go on with the final analysis of your application.

 

Step 6

In case you are accepted, you will be informed on the platform. An Acceptance Letter will then be sent to you so you can apply for a Student Visa and start preparing for your trip to Brazil.

  • Letter written by the candidate explaining the reasons why he or she wishes to come to UFF to study or carry out research work;

The International Office then sends a copy of your application form which must be printed out and signed by the academic and institutional coordinators of your home institution. The duly signed form must then be e-mailed to mobilidadeinsri@id.uff.br.

 

Step 6

As for those who have not been accepted by their chosen UFF Program yet, their applications will be sent over to the Program in question for an evaluation. If their evaluation is positive (or if, indeed, the student has already been accepted), the International Cooperation Office will send the Acceptance Letter (if not already sent by the Graduate Program), as well as any other relevant information, to the e-mail address indicated in the application form.

As far as medical students are concerned, the International Cooperation mobility program is only open to candidates from universities UFF has agreements with. In addition, it accepts candidates only for internship at the Hospital Universitário Antônio Pedro where students are offered Practical Internship (Internato Médico). Regular courses available at the Undergraduate list are not available.

Step 5

The International Office then sends a copy of your application form which must be printed out and signed by the academic and institutional coordinators of your home institution. The duly signed form must then be e-mailed to mobilidadeinsri@id.uff.br.

Acceptance is conditioned to the quality of the candidate’s transcript as well as availability of places in the chosen specialization area. A Letter of Acceptance will be both e-mailed and posted to those who are accepted so they can apply for a student visa to Brazil.

If you are not applying for International Mobility as an undergraduate or graduate student, taking exclusively regular classes, you can apply for research in one of our International Laboratories available here.

For that, please send a message to the Incoming Mobility Division (mobilidadeinsri@id.uff.br) with the desired laboratories and expected period of research, so that the team can assist you in contacting the responsible coordinators and arranging the mobility.
