Ufscar accepting refugee graduate students

19 de maio de 2016

São Paulo – The Federal University of São Carlos (Ufscar), in the namesake São Paulo state city, is accepting enrolments until September 2nd from refugees looking to take onsite graduate courses next year.

Candidates will be selected on the basis of performance in the National High School Exam (Enem), which they must have sat in 2012 or later. Those that didn’t take the test can enroll for the upcoming edition by next Friday (20th).

According to information from Ufscar, in order to apply for a graduate course, candidates must provide proof of refugee status by means of an attestation issued by Brazil’s National Committee for Refugees (Conare), affiliated with the Brazilian Ministry of Justice.

Registrations need to be send by mail with the registration form filled and signed, high school certificate and an equivalence statement by the Secretary of Education in case it was issued abroad, plus a certificate by Conare attesting the refugee status.

There will be one opening for refugees in each and every course offered by Ufscar. But in case it’s not filled initially, the university can issue a new public notice for a new and simplified selection process, demanding only the high school and refugee certificates and a Portuguese exam.

The list of courses offered is available at the Ufscar website (see below). Further information with the Gradutation Admission Department at Ufscar at (16) 3351 8152.
