The entry tests from previous admission process are available on our website. Pay attention to the format of our specific knowledge test and the format of the English tests.
Anyone with an undergraduate degree (or with a similar document that proves graduation has taken place before the registration date in the Master’s program) can apply for the admission process. Degrees issued by foreign universities must be handed in together with their revalidation proofs, according to the Brazilian Law – Lei nº 9.394, de 20 de dezembro de 1996). Those who do not meet these requirements won’t have their applications regarded as valid.
The Master’s in Ecology and Biodiversity Conservation requires full-time dedication from the candidates to attend to all pedagogical activities, which include lectures, meetings, debates, field practices, writing papers, doing research and attending conferences
