SINTER holds the event “International Community Welcome Day” to promote integration and internationalization


The Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina (UFSC) is getting ready to welcome the international community for the second semester of 2023 with a special welcome event. Promoted by the Office of International Relations (SINTER), the event International Community Welcome Day will take place on 4 August 2023, at 10 a.m., in the Rectorate Building Auditorium.

The event, traditionally held at the beginning of each semester, which aims at welcoming and integrating new international students into the academic and social life of the University, will take on a new format this second semester. In addition to the international students of the Incoming, PEC-G and Escala Grado and Escala Posgrado programs, which are directly managed by SINTER, the event will seek to be more comprehensive and include the entire international community of UFSC. To do so, SINTER has joined forces with the Prorectorate for Undergraduate Studies and Basic Education (PROGRAD) and the Prorectorate for Graduate Studies (PROPG).
