Subject: Exchange Student’s Application/Nomination to Unicamp
We hope this message finds you well!
We are glad to let you know about the new procedures for Exchange Student’s Application/Nomination to Unicamp.
When and how to apply
In order to study at Unicamp, the student must be nominated by the home institution and complete his/her application online by May 31st, 2016, as explained below:
- The student must apply online at http://www.internationaloffice.unicamp.br/sao
- The home institution must nominate its students by email (email@example.com) in order to confirm the students application. There is no need to send the student’s documents, only his/her name and contact (email)
Location of classes
Unicamp has three campuses, located in three separate cities: Campinas, Limeira and Piracicaba. The student should check the information available at our website (http://www.unicamp.br/unicamp/faculdades-e-institutos) in order to find out where he/she will study. Due to the distance between each campus (and how difficult it is to get from one to the other), we strongly recommend that the students choose classes in only one Campus.
Study plan – Undergraduate
The full list of undergraduate courses and classes offered is available at http://www.dac.unicamp.br/sistemas/catalogos/grad/catalogo2016/index.html (sorry, Portuguese only).
In order to fill the undergraduate study plan that he/she will have to submit online, the students must select, preferably, classes offered on S-2 (Second semester) and S-5 (Code for “both semesters”). This will appear as “OF:S-2” and “OF:S-5” in the course description.
Important: The courses beginning with the following two letters are offered only at our Limeira Campus: AG; CG; CP; ER; EU; GL; LE; MG; NC; NT; PG; SL; EB; SI; ST; TT. The courses beginning with the following two letters are offered only at our Piracicaba Campus: DB; DC; DE; DM; DO; DS. All the other classes are offered at our Campinas Campus.
Study plan – Graduate
The full list of undergraduate courses and classes offered is available at http://www2.prpg.gr.unicamp.br/prpg/?page_id=1549 (sorry, Portuguese only).
Some classes are not offered every semester. We recommend that the student check http://www.dac.unicamp.br/sistemas/horarios/pos/P2S/indiceP.htm and choose classes that have been offered in the second semester of 2015 to include in your study plan.
Important: In exceptional cases, undergraduate students may take graduate classes.
Students are not required to provide evidence of Portuguese proficiency. However, it is strongly recommended that the student knows at least some Portuguese.
Dates – second semester 2016
The 2016 academic semester will begin on August 1st, 2016 and end on December 17th, 2016 (including final exams).
Important: The academic calendar is for all courses at Unicamp. The only exception is the Medical School and for practical classes in speech pathology.
