logo_pec-gGoverned by the Ministry of External Relations (MRE) and the Ministry of Education (MEC), the Programa de Estudantes-Convênio de Graduação (PEC-G) is a cooperation activity of the Brazilian government with other developing countries (from Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean) with which Brazil maintains educational and cultural agreements.

Aimed at the development of human resources, PEC-G provides students from developing countries the opportunity to pursue their undergraduate studies in Brazil and to apply the acquired knowledge in their home countries. It does not send students abroad, only receives incoming students.

To apply, the student must go to the Brazilian Embassy of the country of origin.

UFSC has an average of 100 PEC-G students enrolled in undergraduate programs.
