The Programa de Estudantes-Convênio de Graduação – PEC-G, officially created in 1965 by Decree 55,613 and currently ruled by Decree 7,948/2013, provides students from developing countries with which Brazil maintains educational, cultural or scientific and technological agreements the opportunity to pursue their undergraduate studies in Brazilian Higher Education Institutions (HEIs).

PEC-G is administered by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MRE), through the Division of Educational Themes (DCE), and the Ministry of Education (MEC), in partnership with HEIs throughout the country. The selection process for admission to the PEC-G program is not managed by UFSC.

To apply, the student must follow all application procedures described in the Call for Applications. Questions should be addressed to the Brazilian Embassy or Consulate of any participating country, where they may start the application.

To learn more about the Program and the selection process, go to the PEC-G official website. 

Our university has already graduated more than 300 PEC-G students since the 1970s. Today, there are 75 PEC-G students duly enrolled in UFSC undergraduate programs.

At UFSC, the program is administered by SINTER. For questions, contact us at
