The UFRJ Exchange Program is a student exchange program performed through the establishment of agreements and partnerships with international higher education institutions (click here to see the list of partners). The legal instruments (agreements) signed by the partners rule the rights and duties of the institutions involved as well as of the exchange students.

If you study at a university partner of the UFRJ, you can apply until October 15th of 2017 to study with us!


warning There are specific application procedures for students coming to Engineering, Medical Sciences and Achitecture and Urbanism courses.


Currently you can apply to undertake a mobility period at the UFRJ from May of 2018 to July of 2018 (first semester) or from August of 2018 to December of 2018 (second semester).
