The Student Visa is mandatory for enrollment at UFSC. In case you applied for the Virtual Mobility Program, the Visa will not be required.

Programs offered at each campus are different from the others. Click here for more information on the UFSC campuses.

Important information

– A student’s nomination does not mean acceptance in the exchange program.  Admission will only be confirmed after the application is accepted by the relevant Heads of Department. Students are able to keep track of their application status through the online application system.

– If accepted, the student will receive the Letter of Acceptance by email. The Letter will also be available for download in the application system.  Please note that Brazilian consulates have been instructed to receive electronic letters of acceptance issued by Brazilian public universities. For this reason, acceptance letters will not be sent by regular post.

  We recommend that students do not book flights or make other travel plans before receiving the Letter of Acceptance.
