PEC-G and PEC-PG| E-mail: cursos.sri@ufjf.edu.br
The Exchange Program for Undergraduate Students (PEC-G) is a targeted initiative for students from developing countries with some sort of educational, cultural or scientific-technological agreement with Brazil. Developed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MRE) and by the Ministry of Education (MEC), in partnership with public and private universities, the PEC-G selects foreigners between the ages of 18 and preferably up to 23 years to complete the graduation in Brazil.

Ruled by Presidential Decree n.7.948, the PEC-G has a specific calendar of selective processes that starts in February and ends in December. To meet the selection criteria of the program, the student must prove that he/she is able to pay for his/her expenses in Brazil, have a certificate of completion of high school and proficiency in Portuguese. In addition, the interested party must undertake the commitment to return to his/her country and contribute to the area in which he/she graduated.

In the present moment, the program has 59 participating countries (25 from Africa, 25 from the Americas and 9 from Asia), with Africa being the main source of most of the students. In the present moment, our university offers courses in all units, with 104 vacancies in 38 daytime courses.
