The International Affairs Coordination is part of the UFRJ International Affairs Office (SCRI, acronym in Portuguese) and is responsible for leading the university's international politics.

With this aim, the International Affairs Coordination performs the following activities:

  • establishes cooperative relationships with foreign higher education institutions;
  • intermediates international agreements negotiations;
  • facilitate the dialogue between foreign higher education institutions and the UFRJ academic units;
  • publicizes international projects, exchange opportunities and scholarships;
  • manages projects designed to promote the international mobility inside the UFRJ;
  • and collaborates on the translation and interpretation of texts in foreign languages useful to carrying out the International Affairs Office tasks.

The UFRJ International Affairs Office and the academic units (schools, institutes, and faculties) work together for the advancement of the university's internationalization. As part of this combined effort, several directors of the UFRJ academic units appoint school representatives.

The roles played by these school representatives are essential for the university's internationalization and consist in disseminate information from the UFRJ International Affairs Office to the academic units, solve questions that may arise from professors and students, and receive foreign higher education institutions delegations.

The school representatives are also the best contacts to help prospective incoming students formulate their learning agreement.
