Full undergraduate programs for foreign students
An international student can attend a full undergraduate program of the Federal University of Pará (UFPA) in two ways:
1st way: By taking the National High School Exam (ENEM), which was created in 1998 with the objective of assessing students’ performance at the end of basic education. In 2009, it started to be used also as a selection mechanism for admission in higher education. ENEM is a voluntary exam, open to all students who are completing or have completed High School in public or private schools. By means of the exam, it is possible to obtain the Certificate of Completion of High School and also to apply to the vestibulares (university selection exams) that use the full or partial grade the student obtains in ENEM. The tests occur in all the Brazilian states and the participants choose the city where they want to take the test when they enroll. Participants can view (and print) their Enrolment Confirmation Card on the website of INEP (National Institute for Educational Studies and Research Anísio Teixeira), informing their CPF (Individual Taxpayer’s Register) and password. For further details, see the notice that is launched once a year on the website of INEP (https://enem.inep.gov.br).
2nd way: by means of the Students Program - Undergraduate Agreement (PEC-G), which offers higher education opportunities to citizens of developing countries with which Brazil maintains educational and cultural agreements. If you wish to know more about PEC-G, please visit the program’s website.
