You will find details of the academic and English language requirements for your course in our course finder.
We require students taking the Certificado de Conclusão de Ensino Médio (also known as Certificado de Ensino Médio) or the Título de Técnico (also known as Diploma de Tecnico de Nivel Medio) (secondary school certificates) to take and successfully complete an international foundation year.
Students who have successfully completed their first year at a recognised university in Brazil, may be exempt from the foundation course requirement and considered for admission to year one of a bachelors degree if relevant subjects have been studied and strong grades achieved (ie a minimum grade of 5.0 or 2:2 in UK terms).
We require a Titulo de Bacharel or Licenciado/Licenciatura or Título Profissional when awarded after a minimum of four years of study.
