UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS:

The Academic Mobility of foreign students in UFPA occurs, with different processes, in two situations:

  • There is a partnership through specific programs and notices between UFPA and the student’s institution of origin; or
  • There is a pre-established agreement/partnership between UFPA and the student’s institution of origin that provides for the possibility of performing academic mobility and recognition.

For the 1st case:

Undergraduate students from foreign countries who come in the context of a program:

The student’s institution of origin must request the mobility in writing, respecting the pre-established deadlines and complying with the programs’ guidelines. The request must be composed of:

  1. International Student Requirement;
  2. Mobility form;
  3. Academic Transcript translated into Portuguese;
  4. Statement of enrolment: A document from the institution of origin stating that the student is duly enrolled in the institution;
  5. A copy of a valid passport;
  6. A letter written by the student, explaining the reasons why he/she wants to study at UFPA, in Portuguese; and
  7. A plan of study containing the disciplines to be attended at UFPA, signed by the student and by the academic supervisor from the institution of origin.

The documents must be sent by e-mail through the sector responsible for International Mobility in the institution of origin.

PROINTER will send the student’s plan of study to the coordinator of the program/school at UFPA, so that the coordinator can appraise it.

The coordinator may propose alterations and/or adjustments, according to the content of the disciplines of the academic program.

If the student’s application is approved, UFPA will send the acceptance letter and the student must send, also through the sector in charge, copies of the visa, CPF (Individual Taxpayer’s Register) - provided it was possible to obtain it in advance at the embassy -, health insurance (containing a repatriation of mortal remains clause), and air tickets.

Upon arrival at UFPA, the student must take all the documents mentioned above to PROINTER to register him/herself in the University and to regularize his/her situation in the Federal Police. In case it is necessary to send or bring other documents, PROINTER will contact the student in advance.   

Further instructions will be given during the approval process.

For the 2nd case:

Undergraduate students from foreign countries who come from an institution with which UFPA has an agreement, but no specific notice:

Before anything else, the mobility candidate must check if there is a pre-established agreement/partnership between UFPA and his/her institution of origin. Then, the student must check whether the agreement encompasses the mobility of undergraduate students and, if it does, he/she must check if UFPA has the program he/she intends to attend or if there is the possibility of recognition of the intended disciplines (by reading the contents of the disciplines of the academic program). Then, the student must contact the sector responsible for academic mobility in his/her institution of origin, so that they contact PROINTER and send the documents below:

  1. International Student Requirement;
  2. Mobility form;
  3. Academic Transcript translated into Portuguese;
  4. Statement of enrolment: A document from the institution of origin stating that the student is duly enrolled in the institution;
  5. A copy of a valid passport;
  6. A letter written by the student, explaining the reasons why he/she wants to study at UFPA, in Portuguese; and
  7. A plan of study containing the disciplines to be attended at UFPA, signed by the student and by the academic supervisor from the institution of origin.

The documents must be sent by e-mail.

PROINTER will send the student’s plan of study to the coordinator of the program/school at UFPA, so that the coordinator can appraise it, as well as a copy of the agreement that approves the student’s mobility.

The coordinator may propose alterations and/or adjustments, according to the contents of the disciplines of the academic program.

If the student’s application is approved, UFPA will send the acceptance letter and the student must send, also through the sector in charge, copies of the visa, CPF (Individual Taxpayer’s Register) - provided it was possible to obtain it in advance at the embassy -, health insurance (containing a repatriation of mortal remains clause), and air tickets.

Upon arrival at UFPA, the student must take all the documents mentioned above to PROINTER to register him/herself in the University and to regularize his/her situation in the Federal Police. In case it is necessary to send or bring other documents, PROINTER will contact the student in advance.   

Further instructions will be given during the approval process.

POSTGRADUATE PROGRAMS:

Students from foreign universities that want to attend a postgraduate program at UFPA, either partially or fully, can attend it according to one of the situations below:

1st case: The postgraduate student from a foreign university that has signed an agreement with UFPA can check if there is the possibility of attending disciplines or doing part of their research at the Federal University of Pará. Please fill in the registration form so that we can contact you to provide the guidelines to start the process.

2nd case: The foreigner wants to apply to the full postgraduate program at UFPA. There are three ways to be admitted into the program:
