FGV accepting applications to fill remaining places on its undergraduate courses

Fundação Getulio Vargas is accepting applications for the selection process for its undergraduate courses, to fill remaining places, in two modalities: diploma holders and external transfer. The complete public notices and application details are available on FGV’s University Entrance Exam website.

Candidates who are regularly enrolled in higher education courses authorized by the Brazilian Education Ministry or whose enrolment is suspended may register for external transfer purposes. Courses taken or in progress abroad must be recognized in the country of origin, in accordance with legislation in force, in the same area or in areas similar to the courses offered by FGV. Only applicants who prove that they have completed at least one semester at the institution of origin may complete the pre-enrollment stage, and their score must be at least 75% for the subjects taken.

For holders of a higher education diploma recognized by the Brazilian Education Ministry, in the case of an undergraduate diploma obtained at an education institution abroad, the document must be certified by the Brazilian embassy or consulate in the country of origin of the diploma, or certified in accordance with the Hague Convention, and presented together with a certified translation.

Candidates will be selected through academic evaluations, based on analysis of their school records, and through a written test, as well as an online interview.
